Water temps and levels

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys, one week away, can't wait to experience Rainy, I was curious as to the water temps on the lake. Not so much for fishing, but for swimming. I have a bunch of kids along, so I was wondering what the temps were shallow. Also, it sounds like you got the rain needed to get back to full pool, is that accurate. Thanks for all of your info, it makes me feel like I have some starting point. PS: I'm planning on going to One-Stop on the 14th to pick up some bait, maybe I'll bend some ears there as well. smirk.gif

Water is between 65-71 depending on where you are and how the wind is. As far as the lake level, you heard right...it's finally back up to its normal level. Also, more gates wer just opened up in the Seine and at Kettle, so we got some current going again.

Best news I've heard in a while! Coming up end of august and don't really want to smack any rocks (at least not more than usual). We have had so much rain here in Oklahoma most of our best fishing lakes have been closed due to flooding. Makes one anxious for the northland.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.
