Temperature and fish –
If you’ve read any trout-fishing books, you’ve noticed that they always seem to begin with temperature. If you are like me, you’ve skipped them to get to the more ‘improtant’ stuff.
However there is a reason they put water temperature at the beginning fo the book—It’s because it’s one of the most, if not the most important thing to know when you are trying to fish: If the water is too warm for trout and you don’t know this singular fact, then you will waste your time slapping the trout-empty waters, instead of moving on and covering more promsing waters. Just know if the water temp is more then 65º, then its time to move on.
I’ve tried several thermometers and this one seens to fist the bill. Compact, sturdy and has a magnet to boot for finding wayward tiny flies.
