Peninsula Fly Fishers

Keep 'em wet and ALIVE!

We'll keep pounding this message home in this hot summer in the midst of a drought -- please monitor water temperatures when you're fishing for trout in inland waters.  Pack a thermometer and don't fish for trout when water temperatures exceed 68 degrees Fahrenheit.  In most inland waters, your best window to fish will be early morning, after the waterway has cooled during the night.

Below are links to some references (including recent guidance from the Calif Department of Fish & Wildlife) on precautions to take this summer.

Alternatively, try some warm water fisheries -- inland lakes for striped bass, largemouth and smallmouth bass, or bluegill and other panfish.  They pull, they fight, and they like warm water!
