“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”

-Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Is it Warmer to Sleep Naked in a Sleeping Bag?

I have always heard that the best way to stay warm in a sleeping bag is to zip up with no clothes on. I've been told by both military and civilian that sleeping naked in a sleeping bag is warmer than wearing long underwear inside of the bag. I once overheard a surplus store employee give advice on sleeping without clothing to a customer. My findings through experience? That "sleep naked" advice is dead wrong.

How to catch catfish

Catfish are classified as warm water game fish, preferring water temperatures from the mid-70s to 80s. They're found naturally in large warm water rivers, including large tributaries of those waters, and have been stocked in many lakes and ponds. Catfish can tolerate muddy water but, contrary to popular belief, cannot survive where pollution levels are high or dissolved oxygen levels, low. Blue cats prefer clearer, faster water than the other catfish species.

How Water Levels Affect Bass and Bass Fishing

Natural lakes have stable water levels; outflow balances inflow, and except in times of serious droughts, depth changes only a few feet between rainy and dry seasons.  Many reservoirs, in contrast, alternately store and release water.  Inflow and outflow are seldom balanced, and the surface level is often rising or falling.
