After reading the discussion about fishing on a full moon, it got me to thinking about other natural phenomena. I've found through experience that it's pretty much pointless to fish when the wind is coming out of the east, or at least to try for brook trout and landlocked Atlantic salmon anyway.
I can't imagine fish knowing which way the wind is coming from, but I've heard a theory that might explain it. An easterly wind generally is associated with bad weather, and the actual reason may be the change in barometric pressure exerting an influence on the water. As the saying goes in the mathematical field of statistics, "correlation is not causation, but it is connection".
Has anyone else noticed this, or anything related? I'm interested in other peoples' experiences with this.
