Water Temp

4 posts in this topic

From the US Army Corp of Engineer site: The water temp has dropped to below 57 degrees at the Stillwater monitoring site... with the recent cold snap, should only drop further in the next few days. They'll be strapping on the feedbag!!!

Here's the link to that web site:

Be aware boys.The water temp at Stillwater differs from the temp in Bayport,Hudson and points south.I would expect to see temps in the Hudson area around 61-63 by Saturday.The Croix at stwtr is alot shallower than south,so it will cool and warm faster.None the less,the time for piggin out will come sooner than expected this year,Ya baby grin.gifgrin.gif

very true about the differences in locations... that's why I like to check the Stillwater data - from my limited experience, it's a great 'forecast' of the temps downstream from there.

Sounds like 'the boss' has decided that I won't be in town this weekend and I have a business trip next weekend! Why does it always happen that I can't get out on the river when the bite should be the best!!! frown.gif

Weather permitting, maybe I'll get out for a bit tomorrow night. Anyone have an update on the early evening bite around Hudson?

I showed 65-66 degrees late afternoon around Bayport. Trolled for 3 hours, nothing to put into the livewell. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!
