Too warm for trout?
It is now finals week and I went down to the river for one last time sunday. It was hot... very hot... I took the same friend I took last week, but just for fun we brought worms so he could catch a fish. I SINCERELY BELIVE THE AREA OF THE RIVER WALKING DISTANCE FROM SCHOOL IS OUTFISHED! With a worm and bobber our only luck was a perch smaller than my hand. I talked to one of my friends who is an avid fisherman and he said that if you are catching perch it i too warm for the Trout. Now, we were down there mid day because of a late night the day before and a need to study for finals that night which definitely affected out luck. When he said too warm for trout did he mean they just aren't active at warm temperatures or that they had moved on entirely? I plan to do a few big river trips this Summer as well as salt water fly fishing to land the first fish on a fly rod!
