I'm a typical fly caster for trout.  Picked up some warm water flies and have been hitting local ponds, so I'm a complete rookie with bass.

The temperature climbed to 101 in my neck of the woods today, and is expected to stay in the 90s this week.  I wanted to head out for a couple of local ponds, but don't want to be irresponsible if it's bad for the fish.

Any bass anglers have any input?  Will it up the chances of killing fish that are landed?

Well, bass are MUCH more

Well, bass are MUCH more resilient to being caught in hot weather than trout are!


Best suggestion is to use a heavy leader and/or tippet and bring them in quick as to not drain their energy too bad and you should be just fine. Wink

Bass love warm water. If you

Bass love warm water. If you can handle the heat get out there and catch em. It's been 95+ here everyday this summer and the bass don't mind at all. I usually catch em more in the early morning or late afternoons though...


good luck
