Shaver Lake Largemouth Bass Rating:
3.5
Shaver Lake 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.

Shaver Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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!

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.

Shaver Lake Trout Rating:

Shaver Lake Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- These trouts really bite on power bait and can be caught on Kastmasters. When fishing Kastmaster, or on any other lures, smallmouth bass will usually bite. The trouts and salmon over here are rainbow trouts, German brown trouts, and kokanee salmons. Other fish over here are bluegills, catfish, and, as mentioned earlier, smallmouth bass. To find rainbow trouts, go look where there is a lot of rocks and where it is deep. The rainbow trouts are the most exciting fish to catch. These fish might not be as big but if you are lucky, you might catch a 20 inch trout. In the morning, the trouts will come near the shore or be on the surface feeding on insects and other foods that they eat. At noon, they will be in the deeper water. When the sun starts to set, they come back near the shore and will be feeding actively. Hope this helps your next trout fishing expedition. Good luck.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
