Big Chill

The recent cold spell put a big chill on the water temperature.  It is now 55 degrees.  A drop of 7 degrees over the course of a few days.  This has pushed the Trout a bit deeper.  Today they were bunched up in 10 to 12 feet of water.  They were hungry too!  A Z-Man StreakZ 3.75 or Slim SwimZ on a Trout Eye Finesse jig bounced along the bottom put up big catch and release numbers.  The strike was a bit light but the fish were definitely feeding.  Warmer temperatures are forecast for the next day or so.  I believe the bite will get even better.
