I dipped him for a second or two in the water before I snapped each pic. Hes pretty wet in each picture. LOL I can't win.

I've always kinda believed that snowmelt puts a big slug of cold, usually dirty water into the stream. And really throws the fish off of feeding for awhile.
But I guess that's not necessarily the case.
Glad to see someone else getting out and making the best of it.

I think for me snowmelt is feast or famine. I agree that it puts in a lot of colder water, and some days it turns them off totally. I am not sure if there is a realm where they are more active or not. Maybe 1-2 degrees below a threshold either shuts them off totally, or keeps them active.

I need to investigate that more. Like I said Ive had 20 fish days during a snow melt, and I have had 1 fish days, Heck I only caught 4 this day. Going to look into that for sure.
