Default Too hot for blue-lining?

It's been unseasonably hot for October, and I was hoping for the experts' thoughts on how the warmer weather affects fishing at higher elevations on smaller streams. Is the key fish higher? Deeper? No effect? Thanks, guys.

Thanks anyways. I caught a bunch of these guys but didnít hike far enough in for the brookies.

Glad you had some success. Always cool to see those sparklers.

On a weather note, TS Michael might give the mountains some relief in the middle of this week.

I know it's sacrilege, but I think I would rather catch those than the brookies.

Nice fish.

I agree. I think the hike/adventure to speck waters is way more fun than the actual fishing, even though they do taste better. In truth, I'd much much prefer to dupe a larger wild brown trout into eating my ugly tied fly ... and I don't mind hiking in for them either.

It's best to have a stream thermometer to really know what the weather has done to the stream temp's. Above 67 or so, it's recommended not to fish; at that point, yes, go higher if possible. Nice pix and good job catching those trouts.
