Default Lake Temperatures

Not sure which lake we are going to go to tomorrow but probably Union Lake.

The kids want to do some tubing but Im not sure if the water is too cold.

Anyone know what the water temps are on the inland lakes?

My beans and frank are small enough without torturing them with fridge water.

I am on Triangle Lake in Howell. Kids have been swimming, tubing, and wakebording for the past two weekends. I have to put my dock in tomorrow, and do not have a wet suit. I saw on the news this morning that the Detroit River by Bell Isle is 60 degrees, which is warmer then I thought it would be.

I was out on Belleville lake yesterday and the water temp was 68. But I still wouldn't want to be in that cold of water.
