I've been fishing a limestoner the past couple weeks at night, water temp has been between 63 - 67. Fishing has been good and the trout are healthy.

Check the USGS site. Some stations show water temps. I saw that some major rivers were as warm as 32 deg C this week, which is beyond what is considered suitable habitat for juvenile smallmouth bass, ie stressful conditions may produce disease problems.


32 C = 89.6 F If I did the calculation right.


32 C X 1.8 + 32. You are correct, sir.

All that math is way beyond me; I'm not even allowed by my wife to add or subtract in our checking account ledger. I just know that fishing in water over about 68 degrees is probably pretty hard on the trout. I don't know much about bass temps.

Checked the Temp on the Quittaphillia in Lebanon County last night around 8 p.m.

I took measurements at the lower end of the park, at the bridge by the quarry entrance and at the next bridge downstream from that and all were 68 deg. F.

Not bad on the hottest day of the year, so far.

+1...shows what the Quittie could be. That's a little warmer than the highest temps I took on it last year during the heat waves, but still not bad.

If you took a temp at 5pm, it would read >70*, and that was on Sunday on a partly cloudy 90* day.

Saturday the air temp was close to 100*. The water temp would be real hot by late afternoon. A lot of guys fish in the evening after work. Not a good time to fish Valley or any other stream with wild trout in the SE.

The water is very low and heats up quickly. And with any T-storm or downpour, HOT water is injected directly into Valley from the runoff from highways, parking lots and storm drains.

It a miracle the fish are there, you can thank the efforts from Valley Forge TU. Fade and the Prof, better yet, you can send you donation here.

Give the fish a break and wait for the temps to go down.

Great post and 100% accurate. But that won't stop the idiots from fishing it. The only solace is that they're horrible at fishing.

Flow quite low.
