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?

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
