Will this Wether Turn Off the Bite??

Post By: Buho      Posted: 5/18/2017 1:52:06 PM     Points: 108    
I want to hit cherry this weekend since I been reading that the bite is picking up, but I am not sure now with this cold front hitting us. I was thinking Saturday or Sunday which will be the best??!! :-/ Will this weather off the bite?

Good question - I am sure the bite will change - How to take advantage of that change?

I checked my local neighborhood pond (in Fort Collins) over lunch. The surface temp was 53 degrees, so it has dropped at least 10 degrees. I tend to think that will move the fish out farther and deeper. They might go for smaller and slower (maybe? have to try it).

I am hoping that once it warms back up that they will be even more active.

Saturday is supposed to be sunny 57 degrees & Sunday partly cloudy and 58 degrees.

Weather and weather changes I think are the best time to fish

depends on what you're fishing for.. warm water species will likely turn off. Cold water species will still be hungry

I think of it this way. Any day with your lines in the water is better than a day at work. If you don't try it you will never know.

Some of my best days were in the nastiest weather. A perfect weather day=crappy fishing.

Yea The cold front will make a difference. Sunday would be better.

I'll just fish both days for you and tell you which is better.

Yup few more days on g town then going to Estes park to fish for a couple days. With this big front moving out should be good fishing this weekend with another weak front moving in

The eye bite will be slower than normal,but remember . . .fish feed when they get low blood sugar . . .so there will always be a fish or two that are in the feed mode . . .

To answer your question - no. Was out today and caught quite a few fish, mostly walleye.I had to change my tactics slightly and had to search a little more for active fish but they were still willing to play.

You find them shallow or deep?

I hit it Sunday. Did good for walleye hitting closest deep water near a flat or hump. All fish caught were 15-17 fow near 10 ft or less.
