Any info on water clarity for this week??
Frank...I took a walk down by the International RR bridge this morning & the River was light brown, viz about 6". Out in L Erie, the whole lake is brown looking over Myers Reef down towards the windmills. That'll eventually be making its way down the river. I'll keep an eye on it since I see it everyday.
Thanks John.. Mike Crehan and I will be out on Wednesday fishing the harbor, south gap. Winds are in the forecast but not as bad as last week. Larry Jones is out today and I hope to get a report from him.
Frank...I had the chance to go by the SBH today. There were three trailers in the lot & I saw one boat in the water. Water was much better than yesterday but still was a cloudy brown. There was one boat way out in the lake near Meyers Reef (perch fishing?), so the water gets better everyday. Wed is supposed to be windy but with a South wind so it shouldn't be bad near the S Gap.
If you're launching from SBH, there is only one dock in the water, near the restaurant.
What does a murky harbor mean for floating junk?
Riley...usually after a heavy rain there will be a lot of floating junk. It's been a few days since we had those 60 mph winds &, from what I see, most of the junk out there was blown up on shore, onto Rte 5 & the roof of Hoaks. Hamburg Beach is a mess. Can't even see the sand because of all the wood. When I looked in the River & lake, I didn't see much junk floating but the H2O was brown. Whenever there's a big blow, the sand & mud will get stirred up from the bottom. It's the rains that bring on the junk mainly from the tribs (like Smokes Crk & 18 mi.) & a few smaller ones.
I was off 18 mi a few years ago the day after a heavy rain & there was a wooden crate & a cottonwood tree floating out there, but that was in the lake. Take it EZ & you shouldn't have any probs.
Larry was supposed to be there today. maybe he'll post a report. The lake & harbor looked fishable today.
For Wednesday, weather.gov is forecasting winds in the Bflo area to be SE at 25 mph gusting to 37 by 8:00 am & steadily increasing throughout the day to gusts over 50 by 5:00 p.m.
Maybe Ill have to break my boat in on chatauqua.
