    Seeing as how the summer is so slow in arrriving this year, I know your pain. Moses Lake 'can' get to that temp, especially around the shallows. Sammamish, as well. There is also Scootenay Reservoir by Othello. And Potholes Reservoir, Banks Lake (late in the summer). I don't see why it matters that much, you own a GP!! As long as the air temp is warm. . .

    If warm water is what you want Shasta Lake is Pretty good. But a little far. I been watching the weather down there and it hasn't been that warm in the past month. The weather is jack up. Moses lake is pretty fun. But a Little small if you like to cruse the lake. But it was the warmest lake in Central Washington. Beside the river. Banks lake Is a bit open and can get windy. Except by the rocky part in the middle. Good luck with fining a warm lake. I haven't been out with work and the shitty weather. It was 80 degree today, might be breaking them out soon. 45 to 60 degree water kind of make me take a zero too. Except ocean riding and jumping big waves.

    It was three years ago first week in July and according to my depth sounder is was 70.2 down at the populated end of the lake. Up towards wapato and north of waputo it started to slowly drop. Sure feels that warm to me haha but then again the sound is 53 where I live.

    Lol come on guys....compare lake chelan to the puget sound which is usually 57-58 unless your in an area with swift current which can take it to usually high 54's low 55's in the summer. Chelan is like a hot tub compared to that!

    I've been jumpin off the dock in chelan (11 miles uplake. southshore) for the past 2 weeks & at 8:00 am today (morning coffee).... Also on Sammish last week July 4th and it was alot warmer than Chelan, Hanging out at the house over here (eastside) for a few days, may hit slimemamish Wed afternoon.. Moses isn't something I"d prefer to swim in honestly but should be quite warm by now

    Edit: we had 95+ in the shade yesterday so gettin in the lake wasn't tough
