Wildwood Outfitters Blog and Fishing Report
Keeping tabs on the water temps is critical during summer for a variety of reasons. For starters, catching fish when those temperatures hover above 66 or 67 degrees can be lethal for the trout. The stress of the fight can be too much for them, and even if they're released quickly the result can be fatal. It's also not the most productive time to be out, so timing up the cooler periods, specifically in the early mornings, goes a long way in making for a great day! If you can combine a cool day with some rain showers that's even better. If you're unsure about water temperatures, some streams show this information on their USGS gauges, which is quite handy.
Most of the action on our trips is occurring early in the morning, and with terrestrial dry-dropper rigs. Something like a parachute hopper down to a micro mayfly is a killer combo during this time of year! Areas of shade have been particularly solid as even just a degree or two change without the direct sun can be enough to make a difference.
Even though our trout trips are nearing an end for the summer, we're already looking ahead to the fall/winter season. There's always something to fish in PA and we're ready to set up your day on the water!
