Warm Trout Habitat May Curb Anglers This Summer

So far weather patterns suggest this may be an uncomfortable year for trout. The last couple springs have been wet and cool with plenty of runoff, but this season is already unseasonably warm and runoff, what remains of it, is well below average.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s, Assistant Fish Division Chief, Mark Fowden, says they’ll be monitoring water temperatures closely as the days get hotter.

“If you have too many warm hours-that’s above 65 degrees-it can become lethal, or at least it can cause them to be stressed enough that parasites and diseases that are natural in the system can overwhelm their immune systems.”

Fowden says if water temperatures get too high they generally ask anglers to refrain from fishing during that time.

So, now just might be a good time to get out there and drop a line.
