In this weather your best bet at getting a good catch is fishing very early in the morning and late in the evening, when the sun is low enough and fish are most active.

Late evening is the best time for fishing in this weather. Keep in mind that twilight is considered the best time for going after a range of fish species, such as Crappie, Channel Catfish, Walleye and many others.
