Coming up in a couple days for a week in paradise and saw the temps are supposed to hit mid 80's, with scattered rain...how will the weather effect the walleyes?? Will they move to leeches and crawlers? Minnows?? Everything?? Cant wait to get there!!!

Weather reports have been known to be wrong. A couple of years ago, weather.com was predicting temps in the 90's for the week I was coming up. I went out and bought an air conditioner to bring with me. It turned out that I not only didn't need the air conditioner, my wife and I had to go out and buy some warm clothes and gloves because it got so cold!

No matter what the weather turns out to be, no one can predict exactly how the fish will react to it. Show up, and give it a shot. Find out what they're doing and adjust. The hunt is a big part of fun for me.

Just got back from a houseboat trip and I packed for warmer temps and very rarely took off the sweat shirt and a few times wished I packed the old Carhart wink.gif

I hate to be a nag here everyone, but any updates on the water temps? May be coming up next weekend and wondering for kids swimming, bathing, etc. We have a place in the Frazer Bay/Birch Narrows area

Thanks a bunch

Sorry we didn't have any equipment to measure water temps. I wouldn't have gone swimming myself, still a little cool for my taste, but kids will swim even if their lips are turning blue crazy.gif

Water temps are 65-70. Maybe a little higher in large shallow area. 80 - 85 air temp thru Tues. Have fun

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
