Wildwood Outfitters Blog and Fishing Report
August isn't known as the best month for fly fishing in Pennsylvania, but thanks to cool temperatures and plenty of rain the trout have cooperated further into summer than most years! From the local streams to waters in the central part of the state, fish continue to land in our nets, including the giant rainbow above that was caught earlier this month!
The fishing changes in August, which doesn't necessarily mean it gets worse, but we must account for different trout behavior during the heat of summer when the water is low. Trout have congregated in key locations in order to survive, whether that be cooler tributaries or deeper water that is even a degree or two cooler. Focusing angling efforts here will result in fish being caught throughout the dog days! It can also help to check out the weather forecast and choose the cooler days in the extended forecast. Amazingly, there can be a huge difference in trout behavior if the air temperature is even a few degrees cooler.
