Fishing Report for the week of 9/5/2014Michael Condon
The fishing was good; it was the catching that was bad.
Fishing in late summer is normally pretty tough. The warmer water and depleted oxygen levels slow the fish’s metabolism and feeding. The low water in the streams makes for less cover, resulting in fish that are more skittish.
This year has been especially tough. The meager snowpack caused the water temperatures to rise and the levels to fall even more quickly than usual.
Fall isn’t far away. One very good thing about fall is that the fishing picks up. But if you are not willing to wait for fall fishing, there are still fish to be caught even in the heat of late summer. Write comment (1 Comment)
