Fishing in the rain ????

I have Friday off and it looks like rain. Live in South Jersey so the closest streams to me that I know about are Valley, Ridley, and French. Will it be worth it to go with a 46 degree temp and 60% chance of rain? If you think it is worth it, are there any tricks for fishing in the rain.

Thanks

If the water is a tinge off its ok,imo.keep your flies on the bottom.I like rising water,before the front is usually good,imo.After it takes a while to get activity again,imo.

Any day fishing is better than any day working! I would go. The best time to go fishing is when you can! Just take your rain gear.

I'll tell you a "TRICK" for staying dry in the Rain in PA , find our state tree "Northern Hemlock" and get right up against the trunk and you'll stay as dry as possible , the Northern Hemlock is designed very intelligently so as to maximize whatever rainfall occurs , the needles are arranged and also the branches to channel the rainfall out towards the longest root ends , which happen to be right at the edge of the trees canopy , therefore if you hug right up against a hemlock in a hard rain you can stay dry a long time , unless it's windy , then it's not effective , with a hard straight down rainstorm though this is a "TRICK" that works. I guess that makes me a treehugger?

I think if you have benefitted over the years by the protection of a particular tree, it is OK to hug it. But engaging in random tree-hugging is just sick.

I've had some very good days fishing in the rain over the years. No special tricks, just normal fishing and stay dry as you can.

PaulG.......those hemlocks all along Clarks got hugged alot over the years , i don't like fishing in the rain but when i have to i will. One of my best ever days up there was in a misty rain that lasted till past noon but there was a Hendrickson coming off there that was almost every cast for awhile. Right below the lower set of cliffs. Man i almost forgot about that.

I'm fishing in the rain
Just fishing in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again
The parade passes by
of bluewings in the drift
I think there's a take
should I wait or should I lift?
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I walk down the stream
the water has a stain
Just fishin',
fishin' in the rain

Sick???? How? As long as there are no saplings involved, I see no reason why there should not be mutually consenting affection!

Dark colors will help with the water when it's up and stained.

First of all it's an Eastern Hemlock and in a heavy rain all the water is channeled down the truck of an Eastern Hemlock so if you hug the trunk you will be soaked.
