In the Water:

According to some sensors from the United States Geological Survey the Great Miami River, Stillwater River and Caesar Creek have water temperatures in the 50s. According to the National Center for Cold Water Safety, when the water is below 77 degrees, it can create breathing problems if you are in the water. Make sure to stay safe on the water and wear protective gear like a wet suit or dry suit if you are not comfortable with the cold water.
