smoke on the water

In the fall, night likes to hang on just a little bit longer and just a little bit colder then the previous night. The cold air combined with the warm water is a sure combination for fog and even some of your most traveled beats can become transformed into someplace new.

Now, I wouldn't actually attest that fog can help fishing. To tell the truth, I don't have any memorable fish stories that I can recall while fishing in the clouds. But, it sure does give some other purpose to fishing other than just catching the fish; to be there when the familiar becomes foreign again.

 It also doesn't hurt the morning either when the fish bite after the fog burns off!

  1. I Think the fog improves fishing since it creates over cast type conditions late into the morning. Nice smallie by the way.

    1. overcast has always been good to me, thing about fog around here is it usually doesn't last to far or long past sunrise.

  3. Hey Blake. I seem to remember a place where you can cross the Fox River by driving across a dam of some sort. You actually drove on the dam and in the water. Is there such a place?

  4. Low water, rain please! On the whistler again? Hopefully the warm water bite treats you well until we get some rain.
