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.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
