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.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
