Ok, it's march 2nd and it has been a bad winter. Many of us will be heading down south this spring for a little water time. I was wondering how difficult it would be to have a weekly or semi-weekly report on WW that would let us know what the water temps are at some of our favorite destinations.
If we could get reports from friends in Orlando, Tampa, Texas, etc. I think that would be great! We would need some volunteers to supply the info, but I'm sure that if I were there I would be happy to do so. Maybe Kat Laird in Orlando? What does everyone think?

Houston, Texas. Lake Houston and the river that feeds it is hovering around 50-52 right now. Very cold for this time of the year.

I think galveston bay waters are in the low 50's too.

This is just going to depress me. There were 3 trucks driving on my home lake last weekend.

My lake is still Ice covered, but it should stay in the 50's this week during the day and just above freezing at night. We should see some melting by Sun. Hopefully we're in the home stretch and will not see any more prolonged freezes

Lake Harris (Central Florida) was 51 degrees this past weekend. Given most of the lakes around here are shallow, we should warm up pretty fast once the air temps consistently reach 70+ (hopefully that will be next week)!!

Depressing nationwide. We'll be coming down to orlando 4/1. Hopefully things will be looking up by then. Kat, I knew you would chime in.

No idea about my lake (lavon, Northeast of Dallas). I have not rode since December because of all those weird snow we got!

But people around DFW said it's in low 50s.

Sarasota, FL- Sarasota Bay Water Temp 58degrees, air temp 60's this week, warming up to low 70s on Sunday. Water Temp was up to about 63 last week, but another cold front came through again and it dropped back down to like 55, so it's on its way back up!

Drilled a hole 16" deep and found water. My seven year old and her friend grabbed ski poles and tried to fish with it so I didn't get to check the temperature. I'm going to guess it was just about 32
