Kite U.S. Forums _ Knowledge Center _ Lake St. Clair water temperatures and water depths

Where do we find them? I know of web sites that list water temperatures for the great lakes, but doesn't list them for Lake St. Clair. Sometimes, http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=lscm4 lists the water temperature, but not always.

The nearshore lake st.Clair forecast gives the water temperature at belle isle. Temps at Metro and Belle River in deep water will be about the same, warmer if sunny in the shalllows. Mitchells Bay is about 5 or so degrees warmed since it is so shallow and sheltered.

Thank you for the water temperature info. At the association meeting, you mentioned there was a website for water depths for the entire Lake St. Clair. Do you have that information.

The American Marine store at the shop has great map/charts of the lake with depths. The data is a bit dated but it gives you a very good idea of whats up.
