Post Spring run COLD snap affects?
Stripe in the rivers south of ATL started their move a week or so ago, now this cold snap happens and drop the water temps ~10-12 degrees. Water temps were hugging 61 degrees last week, now its headed to 50 degrees fast. What affect is this going to have on our stripe moving up river? Coosa was around 58-59, its headed back to 50 fast as well.

Do they hit the brakes and hang out where they are, keep moving up river, or head back down river to wait for warmer water when this happens?

They'll just kind of hang out based on what I've seen in the past. It should prolong the river bite a little extra time when it's all said and done. It looks like a real warming trend next week and water temps should rebound in a day or two.

Staged up fish will move a good ways with the flow while waiting and so will the bait depending on the system. Heavy cold rain and muddy water will push both around some, last spring it did it multiple times and it really screwed up the run in one local spot for me.

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
