A Hot Summer Ahead for Fish
Here are those suggestions for warm weather fishing.
•Fish early in the mornings when water temperatures are lower.
•Fish in lakes and reservoirs with deep waters that provide a cooler refuge for fish.
•Use barbless hooks, land fish quickly and keep them in the water as much as possible in order to minimize stress.
•Shift your fishing efforts to higher elevation mountain lakes and streams where water temperatures often remain cool.
Remember that hooking and playing a trout or any salmonid in warm water temperatures is toxic even if you are going to release that fish. Please Think about curtailing your fishing this summer for the sake of the fish.
