Default Trout ponds

How are they fishing lately? , do you think this heat will kill the bite? Debating if i should fish streams or try for a big pond fish. Thanks!

They are warm. Don't bother (seriously). Anything in the lower or middle part of the state will be very warm.

Ditto, especially with the warm weather we've been having lately. You might get into some if you go early in the morning or just before dark but it still may be too stressful on the fish. I'd stick with streams.

Default Even the streams

Some of the streams are also too warm.
Look at the USGS temps and flows for the Wild River:

Not really most of my lowland streams are 60 degrees or less. I'm new to pond fishing though so thanks for the heads up everyone.

Your ponds up north will probably be fine

If you look at the lows for the next week its fine. I'm already planning on trying a remote trout pond Monday or Tuesday morning. The temps always drop pretty fast going into October.

Yea seriously, everything was cooling off nicely and then these past few days ruined it all. Made for good fishing in the white mountains on Monday, though. One last feeding frenzy in the small streams before spawn...
