Fishing and Water Temperature

WATER TEMPERATURE
Water temperature is among the most important water parameters for fishermen, yet many of us don't take the time to measure conditions in the field.  Fly fishermen use water temperature to gauge insect hatches. Great Lakes fishermen use deep water instruments like the FISHHAWK to determine the thermocline where fish are active.  Salmon and Steelheaders use water temperature to estimate when fish will start running rivers.  Bass fishermen will know when it is time to change to slow presentations or live bait.

Along with other water parameters, FISHBUOY TripPlanner collects water temperatures every hour and stores it for your use.  Using the FISHBUOY Mobile Timeline Filter, coupled with FISHBUOY TripPlanner, you will develop a more complete picture of the conditions you are planning for.

HIGHLIGHTS

WHY UNDERSTANDING TEMPERATURE WILL HELP YOU CATCH FISH

Fish Migrations

Discover water temperatures that trigger pre-and-post spawn movement. Plan to fish then.

Fish Activity

Determine the range of water temperatures that impact your target fish species.  Search the map and determine patterns and trends.

Fish Holding Patterns

Fish will naturally move to their preferential water temperatures.  Start to build a range of water temperatures for your target species by capturing this information using FISHBUOY Mobile.

Fish Presence

Be smart about how you plan your trips.  Don't expect to find Brook Trout in warm water reservoirs. Pay attention to water temperature.
