    Default Question about rainy conditions & spawn

    What do you think?

    How do rainy conditions (heavy rains, moderate flooding) effect fish during the beginning/middle/late spawning periods?

    Can you recall finding them on the banks in a particular section on one day and returning to the spot within a couple days following storms? What was the effect?

    Thanks for sharing. Tight lines

    I'm concerned about Jordan. The lake is over 10 ft. high from the recent rains and don't know what this will do to the spawn. I know a lot of the big girls have spawned out, but large numbers of average fish are just reaching the spawning grounds. I'm hoping we do not lose a generation of fish because of flooding.

    Don’t the flooded areas provide great spawning habitat? As long as the water stays up long enough for eggs to hatch, shouldn’t they be good?

    In years past, high muddy water = a great spawn!
    Less pressure, more fish for the following year.
    I remember clearly back when I fished lake wylie all the time back approx 2001 there was a year we had so much rain and mud that fishing was non existent. The following year saw a boom of 2.0+lb fish due to what i feel was a lack of pressure.
    Jordan will be ok im sure.

    To answer the question, they will still spawn and do their thing, however the females may take a little extra time showing up (always late to the party).

    As long as the lake doesn't drop so fast to leave eggs high and dry I doubt it would be a problem. -Jordan is up and down a lot in most years but this year has been worse for sure.
