Fishing Report

With the summer like conditions we've been having lately the inexperienced angler tends to believe that the fishing conditions are the same as the summer. After all, the days are just as hot, and the waterways are as busy as any other summer day. What most anglers fail to notice is the evenings we've been having. Our days are getting shorter and our nights are getting cooler. This change has a huge effect on the fish as the extended hours of darkness combined with the cooler nighttime temperatures has significantly dropped the water temperatures. Most fish species by ...
