High school football has its first game next week, schools are set to open – summer’s end is closer than you think. So if you’ve been hoping to take a day off work and go fishing before it does, now is the time.

And it’s one of the best times according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac. Now until August 7, this is one of the better times to fish this year.

They also suggest going “one hour before and one hour after high tides, and one hour before and one hour after low tides” and when “the breeze is from a westerly quarter rather than from the north or east.”
