Water Temperature:
On 6/2/2014 I caught a fish that was dark blue with green hues, about a pound, an inch thick and 5\" deep and 6\" long. Like none of the fishes listed, I released it, as blue as a peacock. What was it?
Iron Gate Reservoir Largemouth Bass Rating:

Iron Gate Reservoir Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 60 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Iron Gate Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- When Crappie are out of season the best thing is to find a rocky area and drop live or plastic bait in front of (or into if you\\\'re not afraid of snags) with little to no weight. They may or may not take the bait, although they will certainly investigate.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!

Iron Gate Reservoir Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Catfish are best found in deep water scouring the bottem for food. They prefer bait that is alive and kicking, so the best strategy is to cast or drop your line as far into the lake as possible. Depending on the type of catfish, the lake conditions, and weather conditions, they may prefer a dark night over a bright day.
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.
