The Rainbow trout action is still good out of Wheatley and will likely continue until a strong cold blow turns the water over and then the temperature change will signal the trout that is time to head home. It will then be over within days. Here is a sample of the exceptional year we saw last year out of Wheatley.

Water Temps Lake Erie

Water Temps Following Windy Day

It appears that the wind did not turn over the water yesterday according to NOAA reporting. There seems to be a significant change in the mid 30 depth. It looks to me that there may be a thermocline way up at about 35 feet of water.

Water Temperature Before Wind and Cool Off

I was just taking a look at water temperatures in Lake Erie about 14 miles south west of Erieau. We are getting pretty strong winds today and I am wondering if it will have a major effect on the rainbow trout movement.

These are the temps reported by NOAA for August 15 2016

Wade St Louis Monster Buck

I was lucky enough to witness a monster buck taken just a mile from my house. It was taken by a great young person and excellent hunter Wade St Louis. His story can be found in “Monster Whitetails” magazine.

It was such a great buck that it made the cover of Monster Whitetails magazine. We were lucky enough to know and be friends with a very experienced hunter and hunting PR guy Chad Ferris. Chad had the foresight to realize this was a special event and called for a few very special pictures. He got those pictures.
