< +2 °F diff Water column is well mixed, water temp. is uniform from surface to max. fishing depth**
 red circle marker
> +2 °F diff Surface waters at least 2°F warmer than at max. fishing depth. (These cooler, oxygenated, deeper waters can be key locations during warmer months)
 blue circle marker > -2 °F diff Surface waters at least 2°F cooler than at max. fishing depth. (These warmer, oxygenated, deeper waters can be key locations during cooler months)

Temperature: If surface water is warmer or cooler than at the max fishing depth, use this information, along with the preferred temperature for your target fish, to determine where in the water column to fish.
Oxygen: The
suggested max best fishing depth is the depth at which the oxygen level is above 3 mg/L. Below the reported depth, the oxygen level is < 3 mg/L, which fish generally avoid.
*Temperature difference = (surface temp) - (temp at max fish depth)
**Max.fishing depth = depth on Do Not Fish Below This Depth map
