My car temperature gauge was reading 96 degrees on the way home today in Chicago. Any steelies that are in the river are almost cooked already. When I was there last Friday water temp was 80 degrees and the air was 82. It is probably in the upper 80s now. Lake surface temps are mid 70s last time I looked in south lake michigan. Looks like high 80 to 90 degree temps will remain at least through this weekend.
July is not looking good, hope fully it will be a cool august and they will come in early with the salmon.
Have a family comittment next weekend so will not be able to make it down you should still give it a try.
