Indian Lake water temp.

Discussion in 'Central Ohio Fishing Reports' started by Buckeye Mike, Jul 19, 2008.

  1. Read in the Lima News yesterday, 7-18, in an article by Bob Acheson, and he said that the water temp at IL has jumbed from 73 last Saturday 7-12, to 85 on Tuesday 7-15.

    Has anyone fished IL this week, and is the water that warm ?
     
  2. Fished on Tuesday and then on Thursday. 73/74 on Tuesday and nothing under 83 on Thursday.
     

  3. THANKS for the reply. Kind of hard to believe that the water temp. jumped that much in just a couple of days.
     
  4. Keep in mind that is likely only the surface water temp. I have been out that lake on days when there has been nearly a 10 degree difference between the temp guage mounted on my trolling motor just under the surface and the guage mounted on the back bottom of my hull about a foot and half under the water. The top layer of that water really heats up with a lot of sun.
     
  5. I agree with the differences in temp in the water column. However, I know for a fact that the fish that we were pulling out of 6-8 feet of water were very warm.
