Torch Lake

Recommended Posts

Well we usually go to Lake Cumberland every summer for either a week or a long weekend. Well this year we are changing it up a little. Us and a group of friends are heading to Torch for a long weekend in July. We have never been to this lake. Has anyone been? Anything we need to check out other then the “sandbar”? We are staying on the south shore of the lake.

Thanks for the info fellow boaters!!

Here is to an awesome boating season!!!!

weather & water temp can vary alot in northern Michigan in July - bring some cold or cool weather gear and hope you won't need it - during the evening the temps can drop and the water at that time will be a bit chilly but refreshing.  lake is very clear and plenty to do around the area

Thanks for the info. We have a small group of us going. Staying by the sandbar. Good thinking on the clothes. I can believe it gets a little chilly at night. 

Thanks again.

Well unfortunately we are postponing our trip to Torch. Was really hoping the water temperature would come up but the trip is in 3 weeks and the water temp is 52 degrees. 

Soooo we are heading south to warmer water. We will plan a Torch trip for next year in August.

yeah, its been rather cold and way too much rain.  I'm in Holland, Mi  - Lake Macatowa and Lake Mich are connected.  Lake Mac is 66 deg and Lake Mich is 56 deg.  that is typical and 52 deg is too cold to enjoy for sure.  it is amazing how a few weeks in the 80's can warm up the water.  62 deg is about the coldest to feel refreshing any colder and its painful.

also, with the snow and huge cycle of rain this spring, we are at least 2.5 feet water level higher than last year.  my boat lift is almost under water the amount of beach lost this year is staggering at the state park  - 7 years ago there were articles about the great lakes drying up.  - today they are at or near record highs from Erie / Huron & Superior / Michigan

Ya, here on Erie we are 6ft over low water datum. And Lake Mead is down 100ft. Denny.

It’s a bummer. We where really looking forward to this trip. We will try for late next year. Summer just now sprung in the Midwest. Anytime below 70 is uncomfortable to me so 52 was out of the question.
