The effects of temperature on mountain stream fishing
I may not be on the Bassmaster Classic Circuit, but I have spent countless hours tracking and fishing rainbow trout from mountain rivers. So maybe some of my experience may be useful to you.
This will make or break your outing. The concept is simple: Mountain River Water is colder than your lowland rivers and lakes. Don’t even think of a mountain stream as “Water”. Think of it as “Liquid Snow”.
