Whether you are a libratard, bunny hugger, arm chair scientist like me or a right-wing nut, anti-environmentalist, addicted to "Koch", gun slinger. It really doesn't matter. We have had a very long dry and beastly hot summer with virtually no rain. Normally, the labor day weekend gives us lake surface temps in the upper 50's or lower 60's. In case you haven't looked at the weather predictions they are f----en July-like! Mid to upper 80's and in some cases lower 90's. That does little to lower surface temps. I fished once on Labor Day Saturday at 3800 feet where the water temp was at 65 by the time I quit fishing in the early afternoon. I have not returned because the days just kept getting hotter and hotter. I will patiently wait for day time temps to drop into the 60s and 70s and this becomes the trend. Just because your have had a decent fishing day and the fish "SEEM" healthy doesn't mean that the fish are surviving. Here in town we touch a big lake called Osoyoos that has had a large run of sockeye ascend into its depths. Thousands and thousands of these fish have washed up on shore because of what a fish biologist "suspects" is due to warm water temps. WTF, do ya think!!!!!!!!!! Maybe it's time to start lobbying for a change in the fishing regulations for no (catch and release trout) fishing until surface temps are less than 65 degrees. I say this because the voluntary system is obviously not working. Try blackleing articles on how much longer the salmonid fishing has left in the West. Why in the hell would we want to shorten that?
