I would like to see another rattler--so long as he or she announces their presence. A pretty good brook trout stream this:

Yeah this weather has been awful. Been like 4 straight weeks of hot and humid weather with absolutely no relief at night. Can't wait for winter.

This summer hasn't been nearly as bad as years past, it seems. Have we broke the C-Note yet?

Regarding water temps and how well the fish handle it, this summer is setting up to be a good one! Healthy flows is more important than the actual air temp. And so far, anyway, we have that (knock on wood).

I will always wear waders. Ticks is my biggest concern. Waders with DEET around the upper body. Helps with the skeeters too. Anything else just ain't worth it.

Yeah, for bigger streams, stick to evenings, and especially mornings. Fishing is better, and it's more comfortable. In the heat of the day, head for the hills. Shaded mountain streams, cool water. It's often more comfortable than sitting at home! When you get hot, well, there's cold water to cool you right down. Filling your hat with cold water and sticking it on your head does wonders!!!

Take plenty of water/gatorade to drink, and pick the right places, and heat won't stop me.

I spent all of yesterday on a brookie stream in the laurel highlands. And after sweating up a bit on the hike in, I found it to rather comfortable after I start fishing. The stream still had a strong flow to it, 4-5 days after the last rainfall - more typical of what you'd expect to find april. And the water temp peaked at a high of 62 degrees in the late afternoon/evening.

The fishing was great - although the heavier flow gave me a lot more holes and pockets to to cover, than I usually have at this time of year

Unless I go to a tailwater, I'm done until September. May take the nephews bass fishing if the river drops enough for them to wade.
