How much of a factor is air temp? Isn't water temp the more important thing to consider?

Fish a stream w/ cold enough water and you'll have no issues. It effects US more than the trout!

The only thing it may effect the trout is more food by ramping up ants beetles spiders and hoppers

Try early morn or evening once it starts to warm up. Like daman said, don't forget your terrestrials.

Water temp is the MOST important thing.

You can get a water temp thermometer at your local fly shop.

Check water temps during the heat wave.

The generally accepted water temperature cutoff, when to quit fishing for trout, is 70F.

My focus is starting to turn towards brookies. That kind of fishing is awesome in the early summer, and the deep dark woods and cold streams are comfortable in summer weather.

It's kind of like how the hatch chasers feel in mid-April. Things are picking up fast, and it's still the beginning, there's that anticipation of all that's to come. I feel sorry for all of those who think the best trout fishing will be over in a matter of weeks.

Just wish I had more time to fish!

I wear a pair of old pants, my wading boots, and don't bother with waders. I hit the cold streams (mountain freestoners or spring creeks) and enjoy the cold water.

I guess wet wading is looked down upon by some, but I look forward to it.

Oh, I would/have enjoyed wet wading. It feels nice and all. I'm just fearful of it based on some of the history of board members with infections and so forth.

Yeah that's why I wear long pants (usually brown 'roys), something a little heavier. Although I'm not gonna lie, sometimes when I fish the Conestoga and I know its mostly flat bottoms and I'm not doing a lot of walking (just fishing big pools), I wear crocks and swimming trunks haha!

Bought a pair of nice water shoes for just this reason this winter. Wore them with shorts at a small stream on the way to the jam. Ended up with a tick in my knee..... my knee of all places. I've had them in a lot places but my knee...

Anyway I'm looking forward to using them in WB of the susky while fishing for fall fish.
