Any tips for fishing 90 degree weather? It has been in the 70s here recently but all of a sudden there’s a heatwave and I can’t get the fish to bite.

Fish during low light conditions such as nighttime, dawn, dusk, cloudy days, etc.

Yes. Most of the fish we've caught have come before 10:00 each morning, the last hour before dark and on overcast days- especially with a front coming in

So if it’s a sunny day without low light conditions and it’s 90 degrees, is it a bad idea to go fishing during that time?

Fish early or late.

When the suns up, hit heavy green cover.  O2

Fish slow.

Find water current and fish ambush points close to the flow.

Bring extra water, drink frequently, stay Hydrated.

90 is pretty standard weather here all summer, fish bite in it all day long. Find some cover that provides shade, some moving water that provides extra oxygen and cooler temps, a shade edge from a high hillside or tree lined shore, or fish the first drop into deeper water near feeding areas. 

 

It was 92 yesterday but I caught several from the bank in less than 5' of water, either flipping grass or in an area with shade and current.

Yes those are good times.

Have caught plenty of big bass in +90 degree heat, very sunny conditions, and in the middle of the day, but I don't enjoy that type of fishing anymore. I rather enjoy my fishing trips and fish during high percentage times, catch some more big bass,and protect my skin from the intense sunlight as much as possible. Skin cancer is no joke and lots of fishermen die from it so that gives more reason to avoid the middle of the day sunlight. Sunblock and protective clothing helps a great deal but it does not stop the sun from damaging the exposed areas.

I fish early and late, shady areas, and deep holes ( I live on a shallow Florida lake and the fish really relate to the holes in hot weather.)

Fishing under docks are a great pattern from late morning until 4 or so if you can take the heat !!

going to be mid 90's for you today and tomorrow. if you're fishing in a pond/lake, maybe you can get your boat under the cover of trees? then cast parallel with the shore. fish will be looking for a cool spot too. and I don't mean Elvis cool either 😉

Y'all looking at the wrong thing!

 

Ambient (outside) temperatures take some time to effect water conditions.

 

Temperatures going from the 70s to the 90s tells me a front has moved in.

I wish it was only going to be 90 here ! Coupled with 95 % humidity it’s just wonderful. Fish early, late, deep, or at night and pray for cooler weather, which may not happen here until late November.

No, of course not.

 

But the probability of you catching anything is low due to the heat and warm water conditions.

 

Find cooler water with lots of oxygen and you have found a great place to catch them.
