    Headwaters are still frozen! Water is fast, cold and chocolate milk where I am.

    thanks for posting. i don’t go anywhere Without my thermometer once June rolls around here in Virginia. even if water temps are OK to start I always still fish early in the day and end once the sun starts getting up as that always warms the water several degrees. by july it’s smallmouth time…

    Temperature shock is real too, if you can avoid it, don’t expose trout to 100 degree air temps

    I was really confused about how 67 was too high until I realized this is probably referring to trout fishing.

    trout are gonna all die off in numbers too big to comprehend once climate catastrophe starts truly ramping up the summer heat

    Thanks for sharing! I purchased a stream thermometer recently and I’m planning to explore some water in northern PA next week.

    In California the Upper Sacramento River is getting up to 67 already. Luckily it’s colder in the morning and as you move upstream. We also have plenty of other streams in Northern California that stay cold year round (mostly spring creeks or tail waters).

    Praying for more rain in SE PA so the water can cool back down.

    Does this only apply to stream temperatures or also lakes?

    Every year this moves down or up 1 degree depending on how much warm water gear is coming out

    Good to know for when I keep the fish I’m going to eat, I guess?

    At a certain point in summer it’s time to switch to bass or tailwaters only where I’m at. Leave the freestones alone until late august/September
