    I'm with Phil here. In fact, lately the water has been feeling quite warm... especially down stream.
    Now, when the winds kick up, not that it's ever windy at the dam (LMFAO!), it can get a little chilly. It takes me about 2-4 hours to stop being able to feel my toes.

    Now, an interesting thing I've noticed over the past few months, particularly at the dam, is that after about 2-3 hours, sure my toes are cold, but I've started to get the tingles in my finger tips... I'm probably going to die... but aren't we all. But seriously, anyone else ever experience that...? could be a posture thing or numbness from bringing in so many fish... bahahaha

      I waded wet one August at Cochran Shoals, back when trout fishing was still viable in August (I was a much younger man). I was the envy of my companions, but after an hour or so, I was really spending time casting from atop the exposed rocks. Wore waders in Hooch trout water ever since.

        That tingling in your fingers is actually an early symptom of ED. Honest.
