river temp and level

1 post in this topic

today 11/14/07, river level is 675.73 and temp. is 38 degrees F. brrr huh? the temp is not surface temps. but i'm not sure what depth is no longer considered ''surface''. i'm thinking it's 9-10 feet but that's just my guess. it's the temp at the stillwater bridge. and river level is at river mile 23.7 (stillwater bridge). well i got out the other night and tried a few shore areas but was blanked. last night i tried a spot i have avoided for years because getting to it is harrowing to say the least and was rewarded with several nice walleye, best one a semi-piglet going 27'' no saugs or anything else confused.gifconfused.gif not even sheepies. 'bout time it gets to cold fer them suckers wink.gif. i'll keep trying it till my lures won't break through the ice anymore then i'll be hanging up the rods till iceout.

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
