Weather Fronts

Recommended Posts

OK, I am throughly convinced that cold front's really do effect fishing. So, I am wondering if there is a good site that details fronts for any given area, and approaching fronts. So one could know what to expect before he goes out on the lake. mad.gif Where do you look to see the current and coming fronts before you hit the lake?

The NOAA weather forecast. I also go on the MSN homepage and can get a detailed forecast for ten days out by zip code.

Was on a northern mn lake this past weekend and the front actually got the bite into gear. Been slow because of stable and hot weather the last few weeks and the locals said the fishing was slow. Not after the front for my party.

Fronts definatley affect fish. I usually just use basic News weather to see when fronts will be coming through but any weather website or channel would be worth checking. Any big weather change you see means a front. A big storm predicted or temp drop means a front. Pay attention to when they say the front will move through as you will want to be on the water before the front. Also pay attention to pressure/barometer dropping pressure is a good time to be fishing. The more or faster it drops the better. Also, anytime you see a forecast with stable weather for more than a few days, you can expect a decent bite.

Fish still continue to feed after a front comes through,smaller fronts may not affect fishing but larger fronts do slow things down.When this happens you may want to try downsizing your presentation,such as if rigging crawlers,go to a half crawler lighter line and smaller weights and slow down.Rivers are not as affected as most lakes are,likewise bigger lakes are not as affected as smaller lakes.For me Ill go fishing regardless of weather fronts,fish gotta eat and I want my bait there when they do laugh.gif

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
