Hey everyone,

We have snow coming once again here in Rhode Island, but I'm looking ahead. Last year was the first time I targeted bass and panfish from my kayak, and I plan to do the same this year. I have a few questions, though.

How early do they start to move to shallower water? Does the activity change in time with increased water temps? If so, what's the lowest temp at which I could reasonably expect to find fish? Should I fish particular flies in the early season?

Happy Sunday, and thanks in advance.
