How Long After A Cold Front For Fish To Be Active And A Few Other Cold Front ??

Recommended Posts

Hey guys so we had a cold front move in Monday. Tuesday was chilly but no rain, then today we have rain and a lot of wind. Today was 67*f, and tomorrow will be a high of 61*f, however Friday and Saturday will be 70*f and then 74*f. We have a 30% chance of rain tomorrow, and the same on Friday. However Saturday is only 10%. 

 

My question is how long after a cold front comes through does it take for the fish to be active, should fishing be better by saturday as opposed to fishing this week? Also would you say the front is ending on Thursday or Friday?  Finally does it really matter when it ends, or just the first few days right after it starts?

As soon as they get hunger ;)

I usually go with 3 days after the front passes

Ok thanks guys, when do you start the 3 day count, as soon as the front comes on, or when the temperatures finally start coming up?

The fish will still bite, just slooow down, stronger the temp drop the slower you go.

Really depends if there was lots of rain..

only a little bit of rain and water clarity is also largely unaffected.. I'm out there next day or day after

lots of rain and the water temperature drops alot (> 5 degrees) .. esp if mud is in the picture.. I'll skip 2 days (excluding the storm day where I may try real hard to get out there)

On average I agree with this 100%.  One caveat is that those 3 days are stable/consistent days.

I always followed the 2-3 days of stable weather guideline others have mentioned. This year, though, I've had really hot action on the very first mornings of cold fronts - the very first cold, crystal clear day -- and right at daybreak. Once that phases out, which could be 30 minutes or 4-5 hours, then it gets real tough for a couple of days.
