Yeah it sucks. There are bound to be a lot of closures this summer. The Clark Fork went over 70 last week at Superior ... but that section is already closed due to the fire that keeps on growing down there. It's mid July for crying out loud!
I guess it shouldn't be surprising, peak run-off was a full month early and so it fire season.
I did find some really cold water today, which made me feel good all the way around...and that was before I caught a couple nice cutties. I had to work for it, but it was great.
Fish early, guys. It really is the only safe time, when daytime temps peak at 5 or 6 pm water temps don't peak until after that. So when the sun is sinking and the fish are feeding try to let them be if its warm water. They are really vulnerable at that time. The water temps don't bottom out till early a.m.
