The so-called dog days of summer are a bit early this year. That should not be a surprise considering the drought we are in.
The lack of snowfall this year is starting to take a toll on lake levels and water temperatures.
The water levels are higher than most north state reservoirs but the water temperatures are on the rise and that has the bite falling off a bit.
Successful anglers are working the deeper and cooler water. The trout are changing the focus of their diet from insects to pond smelt.
