If it flips, I'm guessing the cold water will be on the surface. What's the basic game plan when that happens? Go offshore?? Trying to anticipate what to do.

From shore, water is noticeably colder & dirty w / clean water line a ways out & patches of clean water around. 

We did well w/ perch from pier at river entrance at Rochester yesterday when it was warm, flat & clear. 

Today on shore it’s noticeably colder, dirty / clear water line out a bit w/ patches of clear water around. Wind is 13 mph w/ 1 1/2 / 2’ through tomorrow afternoon noon.

How might that impact fish from land / pier at river entrance?

im heading out early morning tomorrow.

Im guessing perch will be off, how might this impact walleye? Any chance it’ll bring trout or salmon in casting distance?

Any suggestions for how to approach & gear & bait up for tomorrow?

Thanks in advance!

PMs welcome.

The West winds last night blew in warmer water this morning.  Our intake temp on the bottom in 50' Just West of the pier went from 53* yesterday all do to 74 degrees at this moment.  You more than likely had colder water yesterday and warmer water today.  When the lake upwells and colder water comes in, the perch usually come into shallower water.  When warm water comes in, they move back out deeper for the most part.    Until we get another East or NE blow, we will be stuck with warm water.

Cold water upwells. Warm water stacks to the bottom . The high winds moves warm surface waters to stack them to the bottom on the lee shore. Those waters are replaced by colder bottom waters to the surface. When the high winds stop, the water temperatures return to their natural state.

The fish travel to water temperatures that they desire. Cold bottom temperatures can have low dissolved oxygen levels do to decay of plants and other dead organic life. At about 39 degrees water temperature colder water rises to the surface

That is why ice floats and warmer water is on the bottom for fish etc. to live in.
