Default Re: Will I kill 'em?

great posts folks...actually 58-9 degrees might even be wiser...supposedly brown trout( that were stocked and still are in eastern waters can handle warmer temps...) summer is a great time to take that trip out west...or hit the ponds or big waters for smallmouth...

if you ever have seen all the trout knotted up in a deep hole under roots in summer in the east there is a reason. Trout find a spot where the currents dont move the water keep cool.

I used to fish even in summertime years 35-40 and did not know any better...I regret it since I probably killed a lot of fish I released and didnt even know it. Great thread and topic ...thanks I am sure it will be good for many...t
