In this episode of RIO’s “How To Fly Fish” series, Wayne Peterson discusses fly fishing for trout in dry spell conditions.
Trout are healthiest in cooler water conditions when the water temperature levels remain in the mid- ’50s (deg F). As the water heats up, the saturated oxygen material reduces, making it harder for fish to recuperate from the efforts from being captured. When the water gets to the high 60’s/ low 70’s it is best to not fish for them at all, and let them well alone.
In this movie Wayne talks about the alternatives for fly fishing in the middle of summer season when water temperature levels are high, and how, with a little preparation, you can still venture out and take pleasure in the terrific sport of fly fishing– even in the heat.
