Accurate & Trusted
Unlike other lake water temperature services, most water temperatures published here are measured on-site using our equipment and are proprietary to AnglerSpy™. When something isn’t right, we’ll tell you. As the original source of real-time lake water temperatures & fishing conditions, we work hard to be the best source for current & accurate lake water temperatures for the United States.

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. We do not guarantee the accuracy of any water temperature or metric displayed on this website.

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.

Lake Water Temperatures A to Z provides current & historic water temperatures for select inland fishing & recreational lakes, as well as the Gulf of Mexico. Below is a listing an alphabetical listing of available lakes. The link description states what data is available for that lake or for that site.

These water temperatures are updated each hour from public sources, mainly the National Data Buoy Center (NDBC), which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a service of the U.S. government.

The Importance of Water Temperature

Some may want to swim or rent a boat, but most who use AnglerSpy understand that when it comes to understanding fish behavior, water temperature is everything. As the best source for truly real-time lake water temperature readings in the United States, we understand the importance of water temperature for serious fishermen. From spawn to fall feed to shad die off, water temperature is the most important factor in determining fishing success. We created AnglerSpy™ so you can Know Before You Go!
