Hi Marc,

There's really no set rule... sometimes it's warmer at depth in summer, sometimes not. For most of this particular summer it's been as cold at depth as it generally is during winter (49-55 degrees). But sometimes it's warmer in summer at depth, high 50's or low 60's. Depth of the thermocline is hugely variable, from 20 feet all the way to below where you're going to encounter it, which greatly affects whether it feels summer-like or winter-like at depth.

The more predictable cooling in winter is the surface water temp...

John
