Water Temp

Recommended Posts

StCroixNewB

From the US Army Corp of Engineer site: The water temp has dropped to below 57 degrees at the Stillwater monitoring site... with the recent cold snap, should only drop further in the next few days. They'll be strapping on the feedbag!!!

Here's the link to that web site:

Be aware boys.The water temp at Stillwater differs from the temp in Bayport,Hudson and points south.I would expect to see temps in the Hudson area around 61-63 by Saturday.The Croix at stwtr is alot shallower than south,so it will cool and warm faster.None the less,the time for piggin out will come sooner than expected this year,Ya baby grin.gifgrin.gif

very true about the differences in locations... that's why I like to check the Stillwater data - from my limited experience, it's a great 'forecast' of the temps downstream from there.

Sounds like 'the boss' has decided that I won't be in town this weekend and I have a business trip next weekend! Why does it always happen that I can't get out on the river when the bite should be the best!!! frown.gif

Weather permitting, maybe I'll get out for a bit tomorrow night. Anyone have an update on the early evening bite around Hudson?

I showed 65-66 degrees late afternoon around Bayport. Trolled for 3 hours, nothing to put into the livewell. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
