I like dry underwear. Therefore, I do not wet wade. And, therefore, my breathable waders must be above my crotch. On a 90 degree day, I wade deeper-- problem solved. Or, wade the Yough tailwaters or any other cold stream and let the sub-60 degree water cool you, if it doesn't actually make you shiver.

I should add, in less cooling environments, I will wear shorts and thin sock under my breatables. This can be very refreshing, yet my underwear stays dry.

RodR at the old Lil Lehi Shop had to go to ER twice when he wet waded the Susky. He figured the infections started at the skeeter bites that he got at the shop.

summer of 11' was so nice, wet, wet, more rain, rain..until September, and then it was just taking fish into the Chesapeake, but, until that point it was awesome.

To each his own. A few years ago, I was in the wet wading camp and ww all summer. Twice in the last few years I contracted an infection while wet wading through broken skin (I guess) and needed antibiotics. Now I'm in Jack's camp....I keep my skivvies dry (and my whistle wet!)

Need to go where there is cool water.
Many streams I fish in the springtime, are now getting too warm. And my focus now is on the limestoners, tailwater and headwater streams
