Re: How cold is too cold?

Well, there isn't much Bass fishing where I live, or in any of San Diego county. The nearest lake to my house, Lake Morena, is just a mudhole anymore, and the second nearest, Lake Cuyamaca, is some 40 feet bellow the normal level. All the lakes around here are like this, everything is extremely low. The Cleveland National Forest is actually my backyard, or vice-versa. It used to be green, all green, full of Oaks, Manzanita, and other shrubbery. Now it is all brown, littered with dead leaves and such. No water means no fish, so the stores around here have no reason to carry fishing supplies. I have a much better chance of catching a fish in my bathtub than I do in any of the local lakes...

County. They are available from several on-line mail-order places, but 
tend to cost a little more, for some reason. Check your other big 
sporting goods stores. Tri-City always had them in Fremont, for example.
