You changed the name from 2022 Caesar Creek Crappie, oh well, found it. Has anybody gotten a water temp from a depth finder? I don’t believe what the USGS is showing right now as representative of the rest of the lake…plummeted from 58F to 51F over last 2 days.

yup... I think that temperature is accurate. I saw the same kinds of up-and-down trends in the first part of April last year also. I believe the USGS temp more than I would the fish finder on my boat… Those are just surface temps taken from a boat, And they only reflect the surface of the lake.

...... changed the title for you. :cool:

I get what you are saying on depth finder, but if you understand where the temp gauge is, it can get a bit wonky at times. I’m probably going to try this afternoon & will take some temp measurements the old fashioned way.

Yes, especially in the summer time the posted usgs temps are sometimes significantly different than my Hummingbird readings. Like 10 degrees different and during the summer the water temps don’t fluctuate like the do in the spring

well fellas.... looks like it's gonna be a perfect beautiful weekend… Got down here to the cabin around noon today… Unpacked… And then headed down the road to Wayne national Forest to check things out… My cousins property borders Wayne national… And it's a gem... only 15 acres… But it borders the national forest... he has two creeks running through his property… And the first Creekbed proved to be successful...
