Transition begins into fall fishing
By George Langley

What an interesting transition period it will be for the next several weeks, as we go from summer’s high temperatures to fall’s dropping water temperatures and color. Many of us cherish our fall fishing more than any other time of year.

Lake water levels are good — much better than last year at this time. The North Woods has had enough rain to make a difference, which is certainly good news for all anglers and boaters.

Water temperatures are again on the decline and will soon be heading toward the low 60s and even 50s. Anglers hope for a consistent decline into the 50s and  really don’t want to see any more of those hard warm fronts. From this point forward, warming

Warmer temps to test anglers this weekend
By George Langley

Here we go, back into mid-summer weather conditions with heat and humidity. Expect the water temperatures to rise quickly with the high air temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s last weekend.

We’ll probably see a lot of people this weekend enjoying water sports one last time for the summer, so it will be busy out there on Labor Day weekend.

It’s hard to predict what the overall effect of this hot weather will have on the fishing. In general, warm fronts in the fall are not good for the fishing.

Even with the recent warmth, weeds have started dying

Warmer weather expected to stabilize fishing patterns

Warmer weather is again making an appearance in the North Woods this week — and not a moment too soon for anglers.
The unusual cool weather in August has made it hard to judge the fishing patterns, as the fish didn’t know whether it was fall or summer.
The water temperatures will quickly go back up several degrees with this warming and then we can hope for a normal fall with a long, slow decline in those water temperatures throughout the fall. That is what brings the great muskie and

Some fish starting an early fall pattern
By George Langley

The continued cool weather has dropped the water temperatures down to an early September level and apparently has the fish thinking fall.

This weather, while pleasant to be outdoors, is bad for anglers. We are destined to pay for this with hot weather in the fall, when we really need cooler weather for fishing and hunting. Oh well, we haven’t had “normal” weather all year.

Walleye fishing is pretty good,

Cooler temperatures changing fish patterns
By George Langley

With the cooler temperatures and north wind last weekend it felt more like a normal first week of September. Here’s hoping we don’t pay for this comfortable weather with hot stuff in September, when we really don’t want it.

Weeds are now starting to die off in the shallows on many lakes, which is normal for this time of year. The deeper the weeds, the greener they stay up here.

Water temperatures are dropping to the very low category for this time of year. On some lakes, they are now in the 60s. This is very unusual and will have an effect on the fishing if they go up again.

Walleye fishing is decent, with good
