Water temperatures

  1. It would be very helpful to have water temperatures updated over the next couple weeks from anywhere anyone goes.

    Anyone have any recent updates from the lakes or local ponds?

    I know the corps have some but they dont seem to be up and running yet.

    Here is a map of some Ohio streams and rivers:

    There are a couple near the spillways of some lakes.


    Now Click on the map, close to Caesers Creek. There is the data for:
    It lists the Gage Height and Water Temperature.


    Also There is one near East Fork Lake. The data is for:
    Again is gives you gage Height and Water Temperature.

    At least it gives you some information as to water Temperature.


    Hope this helps.

  7. from the recent replies as well as great technology it appears most lakes, ponds, etc. are all less than 44 degrees. Normally i wouldnt go out in waters like these but from all the recent posts apparently they are being caught.
     
  8. ive been getting temp readings 49 up to 53 on rocky fork this week.
     
  9. Stonelick Lake 45 degrees on Wednesday.

    Something an old timer told me years ago. Really early in the year when water temps are very cold, fish the creeks and rivers first. They warm up quicker than the lakes do. Can extend your season a month or more.
