Tips on Low/warm water fishing

Too many hot days and no rain can make fish in shallow lakes, ponds and rivers sluggish. Why? All fish are cold-blooded. Meaning they can’t keep their body temperature at a constant level like humans and other warm-blooded animals. So the temperature of their surroundings influences the fish’s body temperature and bodily functions. Really high and really low water temperatures reduce the amount of oxygen in the water, making fish less active and picky about what they eat.

Early Morning :Fishing is excellent from before sunup to just before mid-morning. At this time of year there is abundant food and cover for fish, so finding hungry fish can be a challenge.

Mid-Afternoon:Fishing is poor for most of the day. Fish move to deep water to cool off.

Late Afternoon-Early Evening:Fishing is excellent from early sundown until dark as the waters cool and fish rise up from the depths.

In these conditions, deep fishing baits, rigs and lures are best. Work your tackle faster in warm water.
