Talking more from what I've read than many years of experience folk generally suggest that a temperature drop at this time of year is a bad thing, especially if the air temperature is less than water temperature. They suggest that when the air temperature is low you should be going a bit deeper with the fly. However, you'll know fine that there are no fixed rules in salmon fishing. We've all caught fish when we know that the rules say conditions were impossible and failed to catch when conditions look great and the pools were heaving with fish. I'll be out on the Spey on Saturday and I'll just see what happens. I can hardly wait!
I would have thought it would make no difference,unless the water temperature drops.When the banks are frozen in Feb and November,fish still oblige,sure you will have a chance on your trips.Good luck on the Spey Feugh,waiting for the full report.
Have a day on the Tay on Saturday and notice that there is to be a considerable drop in air temperature over the next couple of days. Good or bad thing regards prospects? Any change in tactics? [/quote
The initial drop in temperature can put the fish down for the first day, but they soon get used to it. Keep your fly in the water and if it swings in front of a fresh fish, it will still take. Best of luck tomorrow.
