Now that the summer heat is here to stay, it’s time to think about night fishing. When temperatures hit 110-115 degrees in the desert, water surface temperatures can quickly reach or exceed the low 90s during the daytime.  It may be nice for a swim, but from my experience once the sun hits the water, fish activity drops off tremendously and not worth battling the heat.  If you don’t mind roasting in the sun then I guess fishing during the day is an option, but it’s usually an unproductive one.
