Ben,
Doubt they would know or care if it is snowing, but they would react to the temperature drop, either by moving to deeper warmer water or going torbid (sleepy). Don't forget it might not only effect the fish. But whatever they feed on, which again could cause changes in behaviour/location.

You are quite right Craig, But the effects of the tides and swell means that shallow shoreline water chill all the way down, to varying degrees

I'd say it's the same for Dorset, seems no fish left here. I guess it was not a good day today mike?

Interesting topic guys, one thing I heard is that snow can break through the surface water columns? almost like rainfall down through? if that makes any sense or anyone else has heard of that before?

Not 100% sure but I think freshwater is heavier than saltwater and therefore "sinks" through the water column.
It is the other way around.

Snow flakes has so little momentum it would likely land so slowly it wouldn't have any effect. Temperature change on the surface will create thermals in the water which will cause the water columns to mix. Cold water is more dense than warm water.

When the water cools very rapidily often the fish will just stop feeding. They take time to adjust to the temperature change before they start feeding again. So the fish may well still be in the same spots as before just not feeding. Alternatively, they move into deeper water which hasn't cooled so much yet.

sea water is more dense than fresh, so how would that work out with cold water being more densethan warm?
could it be one cancels the other out,any ideas??
