Yes it's time for the lake to start turning over. Occurs after peak Summer temp is reached, which has occurred. Since shallower waters cool faster (less mass), you should notice the turnover first in the creeks, and then make its way to deeper waters. The lake color will change to more of a tea color, the water will get foamy (nasty boat rings), and sometimes it has a strong earthy/muddy smell. Usually takes a few weeks if we have consistent cooler air temps and fall rains. Can be delayed if gets hot again. For me the striper fishing doesn't usually pick back up until water temps hit low 70s. That's when I start back freelining and I usually can find a few in mouth/middle of the major creeks. Hope this helps. Tight Lines!
