Thermocline on river

2 posts in this topic

Has any one ever dropped there AquaVue to the bottom of the river in over 50 fow, the AquaVue with the temperature sensor that is? I've read that the river doesn't have a thermocline, and I understand water flow and rivers, but I'm curious about what people have found. Has anyone found a distinct temperture differnce that would indicate a theromcline? Also please indicate what time of year you have dropped the camera into the deep.

Keep catchin'

Turk, I saw a presentation last fall that indicated that Lake St. Croix has a definite summer thermocline. I can't remember specifics, but for the period observed it seems it was relatively shallow. In addition, it had notable DO sags below the thermocline.

I can't seem to find the presenation or report posted on-line, but I believe the work was done by USGS and/or the St. Croix Research Station. Wish I could find it - it was interesting.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.
