....took their toll on my local lake's water temps. I had been on a decent crappie bite until all this crap happened. Water temps were rising nicely in the puddle and at last check prior to the dumping were at 44-45 degrees. This morning the thermometer sat in the lake at 5 feet while I fished. When I was ready to leave the water temp was 39 degrees. Not a hit and no doubt as to why.
