First of all.. It's parts per thousands ppt or Mean Salinity Unit (MSU).. errr no, not Mississpipp State.. it's an acronym ;-)

Trout can tolerate 0 ppt, but they have to use energy to regulate their salt content so they tend to avoid it. Females in general do not like levels below 5ppt. While males have been recorded to swim through the fresh ICW in Louisiana.. apparently on their way to Mississippi State University LOL.. actually that male trout heard there were females on the other end.. But in general 6-20 is a good range.. mostly because of their affinity to enjoy oysters.. no they don't eat oysters but they feed near them and the oysters live in 6-20 ppt. But obviously it's a sea trout .. so the trout on the beach and the ones in Baffin have no problem with higher salinities between 25ppt and even 50ppt as the case with Baffin.

No, it's a problem.. only when it's below 5ppt. The majority of trout will move.. especially the ones YOU want to catch. ... Theres' just that that one [email protected]@@ one that stays behind, it's usually a male. Go figure.

First part of the fall is the hardest, we're still in that period. Fish are spread out all over the place and not enough has happened yet to re concentrate them.

I teach more in my private coaching area.

Also, don't forget that the model you're looking at is also just surface water salinity.. I think we all know by now that the water in most cases is saltier on the bottom.

I've observed this before too. Times when the water on top was very fresh, but about 5 feet down, the saltwater was there, all the way to the bottom. The trout we caught that day were anywhere below that saltwater break.

That is mostly correct Glenn, and many times the fresh will move the food as well.

That's my point. Even if a change in salinity level is tolerable for a speckled trout that doesn't mean it won't relocate what they feed on which will in turn relocate the trout.
