These dog dayz are the absolute best time of the year to catch a XXL Trout. The water temps are soaring and big dogz look for thermals to nose up to. They are the biggest trout and will demand the best lays right near the springs feeding in. The only negative of fishing this time of the year besides obvious hot conditions is the trout are much easier to over tire and if you fight them too long they will die after release. Hot water retains less oxygen and after a prolonged battle trout build up lots of lactic acid and they need oxygen rich water to recharge their batteries. With the warm water there is less oxygen to recharge those batteries.
