There are plenty of opportunities to catch fish even in the dog days of summer Michael Condon Staff Writer "The fishing was good; it was the catching that was bad." A.K. Best Let's face it, August is a great month to be outside and especially to be on the water, but it is not the best month for catching fish -- especially in a drought, Lake and stream levels are low. Water temperatures are high, sometimes dangerously high for trout. Fish are cold-blooded and so their metabolism slows down when the water temperature exceeds their biological comfort range. In addition, the warmer water holds less oxygen. While trout and salmon may eat less in these warm conditions, they still have to eat. Finding the coolest water where the fish tend to concentrate Can reward the patient angler with some nice fish. This can take some searching, but whether you are on a lake or a stream, work the deeper water and look for springs or tributaries with cooler water. Lake Almanor Hamilton Branch remains the big draw at Almanor. Fish move up into the mouth of Hamilton Branch where there is plenty of feed and cooler, oxygenated water. Trolling action is on the slow side, but there are some nice fish to be had; especially early in the morning before the sun is on the water. Fast action lures like Speedy Shiners and Rapalas See Fishing, page 3C 192 MAIN STREET, CHESTER • (530) 258-2212 (Located behind The Coffee Station) Jeremy Mollison and Dana Wiseman OUR GRAND OPENING WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!
