Looking at Spring weather predictions - might be a late start this year!

Recommended Posts

Was looking at weather temp predictions on weather.com  Looks like Well below avg. temps in Feb (supposed to be super cold here in Ohio) with March below average and not getting to average/above until April.

 

I really hope I don't have to wait until April for good fishing weather!  lol

I’m curious when the ice will melt. It varies a lot here depending on weather we get large amounts of snow on the ice. If the water has thawed though before a big blizzard, a good amount of the snowfall justs melts.

Our forecast is for near-normal - which means it'll be April before I get the canoe in the water. Average ice-out for my lake is April 14.

Would like some of that cold weather to come down here for the rest of January. Got a half marathon to run in the end of the month and temperatures between 40-60 degrees Fahrenheit are best for long distance running.

Get outside & look at nature, it's the best predictor of weather!

I am not sure about temperatures but it is looking like another high water year here in the mid-south.  Flooded bushes again yall!

This ^. I can tell by the birds and the thicket growth in the late winter, weather (ha) it's going to be an early or late season. We're probably going to see a lot of rain too, so that has a big effect. I don't worry about it, I just try to stay flexible and fish what's in front (ha again) of me on a given day.

Listen, are you trying to start trouble here? There is no need to go throwing around negativity like this on a forum like this one. :Viking:

I just play what's dealt to me.  I'm in central IN and would have put it away two months ago in the past. Drove around looking for open water yesterday and caught seven. As long as there's water to fish I'm open for business.

Thank you @CybrSlydr. Been running marathons, half marathons, other long distances for over 12 years now. Ran +11 miles nonstop earlier this week and it felt good. Hopefully we get 40-50 degree weather the day of the race.

We're sending it to you. We got lucky and are just getting a couple of inches albeit driven by a 35 mph wind and falling temps. What was it that Arnold said?  "I'll be back!"

Around here it could be anytime from the middle of February to the middle of March.

Repeat Azaleas are in bloom. Most early bloomers start at the end of February here in southwest Tennessee.

The spring looks early, not late.

It's apparently another El Nino year in the Pacific, which tends to bring a lot of moisture inland here -and the trend is they are getting hotter and hotter. Last year we had 40" of snow on May 19th! Rarely does it hang in that late. One year we had 64" of snow in 3 days. This is at my place at 8600ft. Where my bass waters are, got considerably less snow.

 

However, such moisture can also mean good water levels here (we're pretty arid in general), which can make for good survival of YOY bass. We've had some tremendous bass production years on such wet springs.

Seems to be a lot of fishermen wondering if the groundhog is going to see his shadow come February. Not to worry, I'm already on it. "Is it safe?"

All my ramblings about catching winter bass in IN were resultant of El Nino keeping us mild. An atmospheric anomaly known as the Arctic Oscillation (AO) has brought a screeching halt to that for us until at least early Feb. I beat half the winter anyhow.
