Does the deeper water really affect surface temperatures this much? I was at Fork last week and water temps were in the lower 90s. On RayBob today temps were 10 degrees cooler (80-83). I know it hasn't been milder in DFW than out at Fork. Is it the deeper water, current from the lake being high, or something else entirely?

Ray Bob always seems to be cooler than all the east Tx lakes. On any given day imho.

Wind can make a big difference. Fork was back in the mid to upper 80s on the main lake.

Been fishing Ray Bob since it opened, itโ€™s the last lake to turn on, or warm up,

Also, stained water warms faster and retains heat more than clearer water.

I'm not sure why, but maybe it's depth. Rayburn and toledo are very close but I've seen them be 10 degrees different. Another factor could be the rain and which lakes are getting rain water

Could it have anything to do with being spring fed? Seems they would be to small to matter, but some are very cold and if a certain area of the lake has deep water and a ton of springs in that area could keep it cooler? Just a thought
