trout and cold water question...
I read this site's fishing report and there is always a disclaimer that when the water temps are chilly, the trout are less likely to bite. Well, I went fishing with some friends at Paint Creek in the Eastern part of Cocke county last week and I am sure that the water temp was in the high 30's or low 40's, the ice on the bank was a clue. it is not a very deep creek, but has some deeper pools, especially near the bridges. My question is: how accurate is that claim? because I caught a small rainbow and the two other guys I was with caught 5 each.
