Waneta is at 80 degrees, unsafe for fish

Recommended Posts

Started at 76.4 degrees at daybreak and I've watched it hit 81 degrees by midday. Please consider time off or fishing a different lake til we get colder weather.

Does anyone change they're game in order to justify fishing the warmer temps? From most of my expiriences (which are very minimal compared to allot of you guys), if handling the fish and taking the photo is removed from the equation the fish seem to regulate and recover just fine. It's the fish that are handled that I've spent 30-45 minutes with.
Just curious to hear others points of view and tactics for the couple high temp months we get here.

Thx cody, looks like it repair time on the boat n In life til the water temps drop. I had a beautiful 50 1/8" fish die on me like 10 years ago in high heat b4 I was schooled to the wisdom that I don't ever want to happen again.

People who do still fish, most just don't take em outta the water but deep trolling is deadly to the fish bc of the change in water temps. I say if u do fish at high temps, fish shallow but I just stay away.

Yeah Zach hope you heal up fast too. I usually start out around 0400 and fish till noon, constantly watching the water temperature, not worth losing a fish for, for sure. In 75+ I water measure, no pics, close enough for me. The lake before noon has much less boat traffic anyhow. What also amazes me is the amount of people swimming in the algae bloom water. I use hand sanitizer each time my paws touch the water or handle a fish. When I see people swimming a dog I politely tell them of the hazards of it.

Then a nice lady wanted to check out my boat for cleanliness before launching a state survey she said, asked me if I clean it before putting in at the lake, I said that's what my two teenage girls are for, they like washing the boat when I get home.
