For you guys that are close, you can always come down and fish the Gunpowder. It has been ranging from 50 - 56 degrees, and with all of the rain we have had, there have been some releases. Keep an eye on the flows - right now it is at about 57cfs, but with a release this time of year, it can get up to 70 or even 90. The closer to the dam you fish, the better. The extreme lows in the dog days are around 35, which makes it essentially non-fishable.

Yesterday I checked the water temp of a freestone stream here in central PA that holds wild browns and brookies. At 7 pm it was 70F. Probably way up in its headwaters it would still have been cool. But further down it got pretty warm.

On really hot days, I take a big big drink of cool water before even starting to walk, I'm talking about 10- 12 oz. Then I don't have to carry as much water, but I do carry at least 24 oz.
I like the cat crap too, For those that don't know, the stuff really works
When it's really hot I like to wet wade and I've been known to go for a swim on any provocation, or fall in 3 times in one day, HA HA!
Get on the streams early, and leave during the hot part of the day. If it hasn't rained in a while, plan b is a spring creek.
Don't wear cotton, I learned that ages ago.

The object of a resource is to use and reuse a resource, not to use it up, have we learned nothing in over 125 years of stocking?

Tried to get out for a few hrs yesterday, only time was afternoon and bad decision. To hot for waders so I wet waded up to my shins. Very short hike to my destination looking to get some of the local WW species in the Neshaminy. Way to hot for me and I left after 30 – 45 mins. Hopefully we cool off for next week.
