All exclusive AnglerSpy™ lake water temperatures displayed are measured on location at 1′ below lake surface, unless otherwise noted. Third party sources generally measure similarly, be we cannot speak for the placement of third party sensors. User generated water temperature reports and general fishing conditions reports are verified using photo uploads for proof of current water temperatures or conditions.

When we display a lake or ocean water temperature, lake level (elevation), current conditions image or video, or other piece of lake data on this website, we will display a timestamp of when that reading occurred for accuracy.
