Small Streams 7-17-12

The recent thundershowers are just what is needed to extend good fishing on many of these streams.   These will be fairly common through summer, and unless a deluge hits directly the cooling effect of a shower on water and rise in relative humidity of the atmosphere above the water are the reasons why right after a shower is a good time to fish. Insects will be more active because the humidity keeps them from drying, overcast sustains it,  and with lowered air temperatures they are more able to complete their life cycle.  The intensified activity attracts fish to feed.  So hang around to see if hatches occur when you see a storm leaving and water levels and clarity seem not greatly impacted.
