Fishing During Hot Weather - June 2019

Latest Hot Weather Fishing Information From The Environment Agency - June 2019

 Fish can be impacted by angling during hot weather. We all care about the fish we catch, so let's make sure we understand the issues that increased temperatures can cause.


Why is it important?


Hot weather can affect fish both in rivers and stillwaters. As water temperature increases, the amount of dissolved oxygen in the water decreases (Table 1). This is made worse by low water levels or river flows as smaller amounts of water warm faster.
