Fishing in August: Recommendations
It is better to go fishing in the first half of August in the evening and until the morning, while it is still cool. There will be no bite in the heat. In the second half of August, there are certain changes that affect the biting of fish. The nights are getting noticeably longer, night fishing is no longer catching. The reservoirs cool down, small aquatic vegetation dies off, and the grown young animals are already more agile to dodge predatory fish, so the perch is attracted by the fry.
In the first days of August, the water blooms strongly, and fish try to avoid this, since algae spores get into the gills. The fish is kept in clean areas, in rapids. After the water temperature drops, flowering stops and with this the nibble becomes better.
The crucian carp is satisfied with the cooling of the water and the heat, it stays mainly in the heated waters, it does not go to great depths. He continues to bite both in the morning and in the afternoon, especially well takes on a float rod with illumination at night. You can even catch large individuals.
The predator is active in August in the mornings and evenings. At the end of August, it can hunt all day in already cooling water, especially if the weather is cloudy. There will be no bite in the heat. When fishing for pike, you can use any tackle, wobblers are especially effective, and a predator also bites a dead fish on live bait.
In the second half of summer, you need to go to bream in the evening. He is well caught until the morning dawn. A good catch can be obtained on a feeder tackle, a donk with a bell and on an elastic band, provided that the place is chosen correctly.
Roach at the end of summer is caught with any bait (especially a grasshopper) and in any water: rivers, lakes. On the surface of the water, it is easy to catch young roach, and old individuals go to the depths. The roach is very sensitive to changes in the weather, therefore it is less capricious in the established weather. Of the tackle for fishing roach, it is better to choose a feeder. The place of fishing must be fed in advance.
In August, silver splashes of water can be seen every now and then on the reservoirs. It seems to be boiling over a school of perches that drive the fry. Throughout the month, perches peck evenly day and night, slightly weaker at noon.
Fishing in August is a good month after July;). There is more oxygen in the water, the fish becomes more active. In some fish breeds, zhor begins: catfish, carp, rudd, podleschik.
Weather and nibble
Why is the best fishing at night and in the morning dawn? It’s all about the water, namely the oxygen content in the reservoir. It depends on the temperature of the water. At night, the upper layers are cooled, saturated with oxygen, so the fish comes to the surface of the reservoir. When the sun rises, the water warms up, and the fish again goes into the depths in search of cold pits, so there is no bite in the heat.
Effect of weather on biting:
The bite improves when the temperature drops after hot weather.
It’s not bad if the north or east wind rises – perches, grayling, chubs in windy weather stay on the waves, carps nailed to a steep clay bank, as strong waves wash out bugs, worms, larvae from the soil.
On cold, rainy and stormy days, roach, perch, bream, ruff are active, but in the heat they are lazy.
After heavy rains, the water in the reservoir arrives, which increases the bite, since a lot of food is washed off with the rainwater.
When it rains, a pike grazes near the shore.
If the rain is warm, then roach is caught.
In cold waters, it is good to fish for grayling and trout.
