Default Re: Hot Water

Hello Aaron,I think I might be able to awnser your question.(untill someone one else comes along and awnsers it better)When water temps rise trout will hold in deeper cooler water and are sometimes a little harder to hook into.I'm not trying to give you a ethics lecture here because im sure you already know but,trout mortality rises with the water temps,as a rule I never fish when day time temps reach about 92degrees and stay there for any amount of time.I have seen many trout even when properly released, die and float down stream.I remember reading something about the amount of dissolved oxagen decreasing drastically at a certian temp,cant remember what that temp was but I remember thinking it was quite low.So Catching trout in warm water can abd probally will be fatal to all the trout you release.
If someone here knows anymore on this subject please let me know
