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 have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe

      Buddy was checking a few lakes yesterday and found 4.5" on a small lake on "White" ice and when he went to the "Clear" ice it was 2.5-3.5"  He's hoping around today to see what he can find but he's not expecting too much.  Few shallow protected lakes were covered so it'll only be time.

      I know a lot can change, but what are the odds with this upcoming weather that we will be making our scheduled ice fishing trip that would start on Wed (14th) using 4 mile bay to get out to the lake?
