Hey Gang,

My last few outings I have launched from Selfridge and fished the southern end of Anchor Bay. The water temp has consistently been mid to upper 70's.

Saturday I launched out of Fair Haven. It was cool and windy and the water Temp was mid-60's.

I'm new St. Clair and was wondering if it is common to see this type of temperature change across the lake???

I was just surprised to see a 10 degree delta T in one week.

Thanks,

Marke

The main reason that you see big swings in the water temp is due to the constant influx of cold water coming out of the channels. The water temp in the channels is still only in the high 50's, maybe 60. Depending on the wind and the currents in the lake, that cold water gets moved around. By the time it reaches the D. river it is nearly 70 degrees.
