I, personally, would stop fishing. Catch and release is a marginal tool, at best, in temperatures over 65 degrees F. Unless one is willing (and it is legal) to keep your catch, I would say it was time to look for a different spot to fish or time to get caught up on your reading. Incidentally, I guess a day or two later the temperature had come back down to the lower 60's on the York. I see that Lady Amherst has responded to my other post, maybe that's what she'll point out. Luckily, on some waters those type of high temperatures only last for a short time. Someone told me that the air temperatures in that area were approaching 100 degrees F last week. Ouch.
