What can I expect for winter fishing over the next 4 months here on the east side of the state?

Do trout eat all year round or is there a temp where it is just to cold and the fish just don't bite?

Does a very cold winter effect trout in a negative way?

Anyone want to have a mini 'Turkey' Jam either the weekend b4 or Sunday after TGiving here on the east side if our schedules can jive?

I would be willing to meet on Black Friday, if I am not swamped with work or school. I catch fish all winter long.

Stagger,
You should be able to find feeding trout in most streams all year long (provided they're not iced over!). As SBecker said, warmest part of the day is usually the best time. You may also want to try some spring creeks or those with limestone influence. They stay at a more constant temp. year round, and the fish stay more active as well.

Come,,on guys it's fall until Dec. 21, then it will be the end of the world.
Saturday is the best day for planning such events during the T-day weekend. People are still traveling on Friday, and on Sunday they are going home. Unless you are interested in being the only person fishing then they are great days to be out. Personally I've been going out on black friday for years, it works well for me, and there's no one else fishing.
For winter, I want to be the first person on the water I'm fishing. I look for water the sun is on early and then sort of follow the sun.

I use to have to wait until the slush melted in Montana[usually around 11am]then more often than not,climb over the bank ice to get to the water and keep one eye upstream for icebergs.
Fish will hit just fine until snow melt shuts them down.
So if the temp goes up a degree or two[shallows and gravel bottom] its turn on but turn off for the day if water temp drops a degree or two.
Why,I don't know but you can bet the ranch on it.
One good thing is bigger trout will be more active than smaller ones.
Something about heat retention .
So if the water temp is close to freezing concentrate on streams that hold better sized fish.
And if you know where some springs release water -HEAVEN.

Foxfire,
There are hatches off and on all winter, more so on limestone streams but also on freestone streams. It depends on where you are fishing.
Many streams have sporadic heavy hatches of baetis mayflies during the winter, both freestone and limestone streams have them. They may be different species on different streams but the patterns are the same. It is important to capture a sample.
Other hatches include, stone flies, in black or very dark brown. As small as # 18 but as large as a # 12. midges in several sizes, usually black, but may occur in other colors. Hope this helps, it is important if you are a beginner to capture samples or take photos with some sort of object to give you an idea of the actual size of the insect.
Otherwise it is nymph and streamer season.
