Rugged Stream Thermometer

Fly Fishing Thermometer


During the season, a stream thermometer can tell you when salmon will run. Salmon start to run at 30°F, at 40°F they will negotiate obstacles, but between 50/60°F they will be most active. Our indispensable fly fishing thermometer has a flat black metal housing for non-glare protection, a clip for attaching to your pocket, and a split ring for attaching to a lanyard or pin-on reel. Fly fishing thermometer measures both Fahrenheit and Centigrade.

    This thermometer seems pretty well constructed. The price point really sweetened the deal and I think it is an excellent value. I put a tiny dab of blue loctite on the threads and that should help prevent any unwanted loosening of the aluminum housing of the thermometer.

    It doesn't weigh much, but it's rugged enough that I don't have to worry about it breaking in my vest.

    Good Stream Thermometer - 8/7/2013

    This is a good thermometer that allows me to quickly and accurately measure the water temperature and make appropriate fishing decisions, especially during the hot summer months. Despite its metal construction and “rugged” descriptive title, others have noted durability problems with the thermometer’s sheath and cap. However, I have experience no problems by storing the thermometer in the dedicated sleeve of my Tac-L-Pak vest. To avoid problems, I suggest not hanging this thermometer on an external zinger or lanyard, but rather storing it in a pack, shirt or vest pocket when not in use. All-in-all, this is a useful fishing tool at a reasonable price.

    Had an issue with the cap and the thermometer turning also. Easy fix was to flatten the threads with a file then hold the thermometer while tightening the cap. Works beautifully and I bought it because of the price point.

    First Impressions - 12/30/2012
    By: from Bangor, Maine

    Cold and blowing snow outside, but the Rugged Stream Thermometer brought thoughts of warm, still evenings and the shift in water temperatures from spring to summer. It is as advertised: designed to be easy to use and read while constantly protected by a sturdy sheath. No case to remove (and drop in the water--I had one of those!), and comes with the option to attach to vest with clip or ring. Thanks.

    Excellent Thermometer - 10/11/2012

    Very accurate. Two small drops of super glue on seam and item is set to go, no problems.
