Given that other than 2013 (which has reasons all its own with the inflow of water to the lake) the temperature curves are all about the same. Based on that, I would not say that the summer heat (i.e. "Climate Change"/"Global Warming") is not the problem. So it has to be something else. Could it be that draw down for winter and/or power generation are sucking the LOW DO water from upstream into the area where the Stripers go for suitable temps (i.e. Death Trap)????
Using the 2012 chart as a "baseline", and eliminating the special cause for 2013, one must ask what has changed from 2012 to the similarity of 2014-2018...…. HMMMMMMMM?????
I do not think the CORPS' mission includes any responsibility for recreation on the lake. Could the answer be in that statement?
