How Does Weather Affect Fishing May 7, 2021
Weather conditions of all types affect fish behavior. From dreaded cold fronts and soaring barometric pressure to a walleye chop, light rain, or leaden skies, Mother Nature plays a hand in our favorite pursuit.
Thankfully, if you don't like the fishing weather conditions you've been dealt for the day, you typically don't have to wait long until everything changes.
Light rain is good for fishing, as the rain helps you hide from the fish. It also washes bait and other insects into the water. Fish feed a lot more in such conditions. On the other hand, very heavy rain is not good for fishing. This is because fish will find it increasingly difficult to see the bait. The water's current can affect them, too, making them move very slowly.
