Default Hot weather and water temps

I keep hearing it is supposed to get close to or above 100 degrees here this weekend. I am not sure of the current water temps but wanted to know when you all generally stop fishing water temp wise?

I usually stop if it gets up around 65/66. Some say 68-70ish depending on the species.

Ok, thanks! That's about the same for myself, when the temps hit the mid sixties I spend my time in the high country. With the water levels already so low in southern Colorado, I am worried the temps will rise early as well again. Such is life, huh.

I usually wet wade with the Simms neoprene socks and my boots when it's really hot. If the water is really stained/dirty/smelly, I will wear the waders with a lightweight base layer just to act as a moisture wicker.

Generally speaking, I stop when I run out of time.

Default Re: Hot weather and water temps

Good topic, I was floating yesterday and the water is already getting low, out of curiousity I checked the water temp and was really surprised to see it was 62 degrees this early in the summer. It won't be much longer before the temps get too high to fish except early mornings or go hit the tailwaters.

Trout will migrate great distances to find comfortable water temperature.
Sometimes that makes them too easy to find.
One area river has what they call Thermal Refuges where in the warmest weather you can see trout literally stacked up by the hundreds

Default Re: Hot weather and water temps

yeah, it's about to get really hot in Ca over the next many days. Between fire danger, hot water and wildlife driven down out of the mtns looking for water it's going to be a deadly summer. I hear the Klamath is already warm and that can kill thousands of anadramous fish, as we've seen in the past. Ugly
