The fishing trips are starting to require more fortitude as we roll into colder weather. Even after we did the homework and picked a “good” weather day, we still faced colder temps and harsher conditions than forecasted.
Another mentionable note is the snow encountered. During the previous drought cycle snow was not a concern until we reach late November. This year we seem to be falling back into the traditional weather cycle and the high country is getting more snow and it’s sticking pretty well in spots. Instead of looking at the forecasted high temperatures anglers need to be more concerned with the forecasted low temps on the day you are fishing and dress for that especially if you are hitting the spot early in the morning.
Fishing all year round in Colorado requires the ability to transition through seasons and weather conditions. Fishing in the cold season requires a lot of fortitude. I do not control the weather so rather than loathe and complain about the cold season…I simply find ways to fish through it.
