Warm rain fronts ? What to expect

Recommended Posts

Soo I know there has been lots of talk of cold rain fronts but what about warm rain? For the last couple days it’s been warming up slowly from 35-45 and todsy is 55! Now it has rained so far todsy but it’s a warm rain compared to how it normally is. Tomorrow is supposed to be 65! With scattered clouds mostly sunny.. usually the day after a storm the fish don’t bite as much but in this case bc it’s so warm would it be a good time to go out? Would they react better bc the water warmed up

Obviously depends on a lot of variables, but in general, warm rains in the spring are usually a good thing which will get shallow fish biting, even if temporary. Warming water temps will boost up metabolism, and if coupled with some stained water (not mud), create a positive bite window. May not affect deeper fish much though unless accompanied by some strong winds that mix the water well.

The area I’m going to fish is a 60 acre lake made for canoes only, has lots of bass as I caught 72 in one outing before which is a PB for numbers. Not to deep at 17 ft for max depth and between 5-7 ft is the average. Usually is a clean water lake but can get muddy or stained during storms.

Sounds like a neat place. I'd go in expecting good things to happen until the fishing proves otherwise :lol:

Look very shallow on warming and rising waters.  The dirty water makes them brave and as water rises they are looking for food.

dont forget to fish those areas where the inflow from that warm spring rainfall enters the lake/pond.

It might still be too cold where you are, but I would try a topwater bait.  A warm rain on a summer day may make the bass come to the surface searching for food.

In the Spring, the days after warm rain, are usually accompanied by wind.

Go back to your basic rules and follow them for pre-spawners

Thank you everyone! It will probably be a little muddy but nothing I haven’t fished before , suprisingly the wind is calm tomorrow it’s supposed to be around 8-10 mph winds it shows. I’ll try fishing the areas you all said.  It’s a man made lake which was use as a watershed program for farmers when the creek overflowed.  Hoping for my first bass of the year!

Lots of variables involved.  If you have an opportunity just go fish.

Some of my best days have come on warming rainy spring days. If there's any way you could schedule your trip to fish before a warm spring rain, those times can be very good too.

The temperature of the rain water and a cold front are 2 different things. A cold front is the higher pressure weather behind the rain that is associated with a low pressure front. 

If the rain water is warmer then the lake/pond water that is a positive factor as it warms the water in lieu of cooling it.
