I got this rule of thumb from John at Grindstone -- during dropping, cold temperatures, the fish will be lethargic and you pretty well have to bounce the fly off their noses. But if temps have been stable for a few days, then they'll be active even in water one or two degrees above freezing. Having hooked steelhead in mid-winter while stripping a streamer quickly, I think John has it right.
