If I don’t have to break through ice, I’ll go fishing.

I have fished when the air temp was 50 and the water temp was 42 and when the air temp was 19 and the water was 42. Fish don't wear jackets or coats. They are like every other animal in the wild. They still need to eat to survive. Finding a pattern on the other hand is a bit different.

Have caught LMB's pulling an A-rig off the ice and letting it settle.  Was an awesome day...other days I go when it's beautiful I stink things up.  Guess that's why I fish a lot so that I hopefully have more good days!!

Wind I'll fish in. Cold I'll fish in. Cold and windy, I'm out. Cold for me is below 30 because that's when guides start to ice up and make fishing difficult. If it's not too windy I can deal with that, I've fished in single digits more than once when the wind wasn't blowing and it's not bad. Toss in a 15mph wind though, I'll probably just sit in my shop and make baits instead.

  If I can make a fire  to melt the ice on the guides (and my frozen fingers) I'll fish. One year or another, I've fished open water every month of the year. I do NOT ice fish, though.  I'm crazy, but not that crazy.    jj

I fish year round.  During the fall, winter, and spring, I'm standing in waist high water fishing steelhead.  When summer rolls around, they head out to the bigger lakes and that's when I fish other species.  I've been out in the streams in below freezing temps many times, even a few this year.  When the ice fishermen are all hunched over a bucket in their shanties, I'm enjoying solitude on the river.

This question got me thinking , so I checked my Anglr stats and the coldest weather I fished in during 2018 was 44 degrees, late season. These stats tell me I’m getting less resistant to cold; because in past seasons I would usually throw crankbaits, jerkbaits and jigs down to 32 degrees.

Other than ice fishing I will fish open water as long as my guides don't freeze and it's not too windy. 30's and windy is just cold unless there's some sun, and since I fish out of a kayak it gets frustrating trying to fish slowly in cold water when the wind is blowing you around everywhere.

35-40 degrees...I am old and wise and leave the experience to others to discover.

If it's sunny without wind then anything above 20 degrees is good for me.
