Not really sure I’d consider July 13th late summer. These tourneys are scheduled early in the year to obtain permits and for people to plan. NY chapter just had a huge tourney two weeks ago. I know I saw temps over 80 south prior to that tourney. I dont expect Three Rivers to have near that turnout. Id say late July/August usually have the highest potential for higher water temps.


Either way, im not entering the tourney but I will be fishing. Last weekend I water released all but a couple fish I wanted a quick pic of for my daughter. Water temps North were around 77. Experience handling fish is the key. Netting big fish and taking lots of pics in hot water is a bad combination.


Im not sure what water temps are today but air temp lows in the 50s the next several days. Highs under 80 all but Saturday. Will probably be fine, but like I said experience handling fish properly (especially bigger fish in warmer water) is key.


Also...not just tourneys to be concerned about. There are quite a few muskie guide boats pounding it hard every day out there now. Usually 5 plus guide boats there every day I’m out. Clients always want pictures.
