I read a post on here a few minutes ago and it got me thinkin'... Trout fishing isnt all that good when its cold, but for me it seems that things pick up a little bit if it snows while Im fishing. This has happened several times (not this year, no real snow yet). I was thinking, do the snow flakes give the appearance of something to eat, or it there a change in pressure of something? Has anyone else experienced this?

I love FF in the snow!

You also see a lot of pictures of FF in the snow out west. Is it just our southern trout that get put down by the cold? I like winter fishing, just have a harder time finding the chance to go with active kids and shorter days.

BTW, I can really see the days getting longer now...

Now, I realize this is for Southeast Louisiana, but after 2 solid weeks of chilly, rainy weather, this might be a sign that we're turning the corner. Not only are the days getting longer, but it looks like the jet stream patterns are modifying. It looks like a slow warmup might be in store for the Southeast.

This got me thinking about a time I was fishing the Little Pigeon above Chimney Tops in the snow. It was an early April storm that started about 2 hours after I had climbed up the river. I was having no luck until the rain switched over to almost white out snow. I managed to catch a few small fish. I think the snow just masked my presence. Lets just say getting back to the car was an extremely dicey proposition. Icey Felt on Wading Boots & Rock Hopping over Huge Boulders don't Mix!
