No concern, I am fully prepared for COLD... Survived 5 below with 40 - 50 MPH winds with the RV. I have several heat lamps I put underneath the RV (don't think they work that great). I heat the RV park's pipe, I have a water softener that I cover with fiberglass insulation, I use heated water hoses (2) and put a heater in the bathroom (where the main water inputs are). What froze was my sewer pipe since I had a seeping water valve.
Trout LOVE Cold water. They get very active and FEED!
I wear two pair of pants underneath my waders, in addition to long underwear (florida boy). The second pair of pants are ski pants, warm and toasty. My hands get cold when I grab the trout since they need to be wet but warm up quickly. As long as the wind isn't blowing, I'm good!
