Hey guys,I am farly new at posting questions on this forurm so bare with me please.

My brother and I and two friends are venturing up to Vermilion this July,,,has anyone been monitoring the water temp over the past few years in and around July? We were thinking maybe the week after the 4th.I have been there right on the 4th and it was really busy,,but still managed to hook up with a 41 inch Ski and some bonus Large Pike.As you can see in the pic I was dreesed to the hilt,,,on the other hand I was up with a friend before the 4th and we only saw only 1 ski! But 2 years before that my bro and I were swmming the week after the 4th and we had about 20 follows in 1 day!I know its hit and miss on those ski's,any help out there on the perfect water temp?We all practice Catch+Release

Really depends on the weather during your individual week bigaceks. I would say weather water temp in less than 10 feet of water should be from 72-76 degrees in early July, but if a cold front comes through it can certainly go down. Like Ranckenstuff said, there were a ton of those types of posts in mid summer.

Ranckenstuff.....looking forward to the drip, drip, drip.

bigaceks, my advice is to go to the Lakevermilion site and look for resort fishing reports. You can go back a few years I believe. I think you'll find a big spike in musky catches in July, usually in the 2nd and 3rd week, sometimes the last week. Then, the catches start to go down a little, culminating in a slow week on the exact week I am there every year, the third week in August! So, if you can go the week after July 4th or the week after that, I think you'll avoid traffic as well as enjoy the best musky fishing of the year, as far as numbers and musky activity goes.

My impression over the years is that surface temps are typically in the low 70's, but can be in the high 60's at that time of year, although as has been said it can change quite a bit due to weather at that time of year. Swim one day, wearing fleece the next.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Went up this morning. Taking the boat out in the morning on the 22 access I wont get out to far but it can be great for cats where the ice is.  lots of dead matter etc. we will see.

      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing. 
    • IceHawk
      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell
