Stream temps 4/7/07

5 posts in this topic

Sat out in front of the french for a while on sat. It was pretty slow, only had one bite. Checked the temp in the river and it was at 33*.

Then went up to the sucker and seen a few loopers swimming up river, but had no luck either. The temp there was about the same 33*.

When do you guys think the streams will heat up and the fishing will get HOT???

Thats pretty simple isnt it? When we get some warm weather and a warm rain or two. Snow and freeezing temps dont make for great fishing and smelting conditions. Im saying a couple weeks. Looks like no warm temps til next week up here.

Yeah, obviously better weather is a huge factor.

I remember years past I was stream fishing by this point. Last year the best week for me was the third of April. My guess this year would also be at least a week, maybe two.

Got nothin else to do today but read posts and tie flies.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
