Turnover

12 posts in this topic

Have any lakes turned over or are any close. I'd imagine some of the smaller lakes would be with the colder weather heading our way. Get ready. grin.gif

I have found the most lake turnover around 60-58 degrees. Much of it is dependent on summer temps and how cool the water is getting. We may be getting very close, on some really small lakes. This time of year i'll fish the bigger lakes, looking at the smaller ones from time to time, because they turn over later.

Pulaski was 53 on sunday evening. I was fishing and chatting with another gentleman. He caught a 35" pike the largest I have seen come from pulaski. It's to bad the city pulled the dock out so soon. The lake will not freeze another month.

Exactly how do you all define turnover? Technically, it is when the water on the top "layer" becomes more dense than the layers underneath. Well water is most dense @ 39°F (known physical properties of water) and not 58-60.... Just wondering. confused.gifconfused.gif

Smallie-h, that is true water is most dense at 39. But the bottom of a lake may warm to 50-60 degrees, than when the surface temps match that of the bottom, you get turn-over. Some lakes don't get a thermocline (ie Mille lacs) the bottom may be cooler than the surface but it still has a good oxygen at the bottom. Pulaski has very little oxygen below 35ft in august. I checked water temps in august was 55degres at 44ft, I could not check lower than that for now. I just purchased a temp recorder, you attach to a fishing line a lower to the bottom, it is to show the temp every 5 ft will be interesting to see what the temp is at 80 ft.

I was pulaski friday, the surface temp there was 50 degrees. If that would say any about clearwater, would figure it could be colder. That Clearwater is not as deep as Pulaski. I plan on going to clearwater either today or sunday.

Pulaski did turnover on monday. When I drove to check surface temp. the lake smelled of rotten eggs. Just I was told to watch (smell) for. Today's surf temp. 48 degrees

Buffalo, surface temp 45 degrees

Clearwater, surface temp 45 degrees

Time to hit the fall post turnover lakes.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
