    I agree. I saw temps of 58 and 59 all morning at Verona and only saw one boat that had a fish, and it wasn't mine.
    Taking off and flying is easy, it's the landings that will kill you.



    Oh Yeah!...Salmon!...Everything else is just practice.

    The warmer the water the less O2 in it. Fish are less aggressive when the can't get enough oxygen. The colder the water the more oxygen is dissolved in it. more O-2 = more active. I think it's that simple.

    Got to love how salmon come up in various flows and temperatures. That being said, everyone has the conditions worked out that produce best for them in terms of presentation.

    So, I suggest get out there when ya can!

    Good luck,

    Those fish that were caught in July were the left over spring run

    Notice I said at the Redds. The Salmon will come in as soon as they sense the cooler water. If it was 70 at Rio Vista and dropped to 68, that could be enough to get them moving.

    I agree, a slight change in temps can tell the Salmon that by the time they reach the redds the water will be cool enough to spawn. 60 isn't a magic number for Salmon unless it's at the Redds.
