WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT FISHING DURING WARM WATER CONDITIONS!!!
Did You Know?????
- that fish gathered at mouths of tributaries and in spring holes are struggling to survive when the main stream is 70 degrees or more?
"Those who choose to angle can opt to fish in the morning, when water temperatures are cooler, or fish at a different location if water conditions are unfavorable at their usual site. Because mortality levels increase drastically when water temperatures are over 74 degrees, anglers should voluntarily limit fishing to protect native trout. Anglers can also aid the effort when releasing fish by using barbless hooks, keeping fish in the water as much as possible and limiting the amount of handling time. It is also advised that anglers wet their hands before removing hooks, and take care not to touch the fish's gills."
