Water...ahead or behind???

9 posts in this topic

Hello all. My friends and I make a trip a year up to the Cass Lake area on Memorial weekend. Was just wondering if the water temps are ahead or behind what is normal? We have had great fishing the past couple of years, so I know we are due for the wrong place/wrong time. Thanks for any help.

Not sure on the current situation. But I would say for Memorial weekend that it's a little early to be looking at ahead or behind normal on water temps. One heat wave or cold front between now and then can completely change things in just a few days. I would suggest checking back about 10 days before your trip to anticipate where things are at and what you might be able to expect for Memorial weekend.

Hard to tell the temps for sure but like Aaron says check in with us the week before you come up.. I will be out guiding on Memorial Day and I am expecting a good bit by then... At last nights DNR meeting I heard water temps in the low 50's in the bays and 49 degrees in the big lake...

Hey Beef,

Where is a boat ramp on Pike Bay. We will be up there on Cass Memorial Weekend but also love going to Pike Bay for those perch. Any info would be great!

Boat Ramp on Pike Bay??? grin.gif

Kidding it is at the Campground on the South end of the Lake.

The campground access works if the water is at normal or above average levels. Right now we are at normal levels (really I'm not joking)... But over Memorial weekend you could get through from Cass depending on the wind direction and wind speed... If your going through the channel and the wind is pounding in from Pike Bay--Two words--Good Luck!!

Any more questions feel free to call me or email me or post them on here.. See my Link below... Good Luck...

The temp on Six-Mile lake was a few degrees above normal on Friday. You would have to check with the resorts or bait shop to find out there.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.

      fished a different spot today and it was strange, I was using crawlers and a lot of eyes bit and only 1 sucker.  guy next to me was using earthworms and he caught a lot of suckers and 1 eye.  twilight zone ! !  LOL  I just use a slpit shot most of the time.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.
