Rain = low barometric pressure system.
Fish are very sensitive to barometric pressure. High pressure, blue bird, cold front days.... Think of the fish as having a headache. Low pressure, means fish activity is generally higher. Rain, usually accompanied by a storm front, means a cold front/high pressure system is usually on the way. Fish, and other animals can sense this, and usually put on the feed bag since their activity will decrease during in impending cold front. Same applies to hunting. Even deer movement and activity spikes just before a storm front.

West wind :
In addition to bringing cooler water close to the lakefront, west winds are also a stable wind, often bringing low pressure and warmer air (west , southwest...) so west winds or southwest winds are generally good for fishing everywhere. (because of the pressure system). North winds, or east winds normally bring high pressure, and cold fronts.
