Fished Garrison yesterday and started fishing the banks in the front and worked my way to the lilly pads on the front boat launch side with not even a bite.the winds started picking up as I was heading towards the back of the lake when i got to the very back I started catching bass with a green and white spinner bait with a white trailer grub. by the end of the day I had caught at least 7 fish 12 or better one was 4 1/2lbs -2 were over 3 lbs 3 were 1 1/2 lbs and one 12 incher. cold front moved in and the fishing started to shut down. the cove heading towards the back on the left is where I caught 1/2 my fish the rest all the way back in the lilly pads.

Garrisons Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This place is about 4 ft deep almost everywhere except for upclose on the banks.
This place is also FILLED with lilly pads throughout most of the pond. It is
known to either produce nothing, or a 15-16lb sack. I had my luck with suspending
rattle traps on the pad lines. 4 fish for about 11 lbs on july 4 2012, but zeroed
the other time I fished it in late march 2012.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Garrisons Lake at 46 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 46 degrees. It's time to fish deep and slow. Try some deep primary points, drop offs, and old river channels with rocks. Jigs, plastics and deep jerk baits will be your best bet to boat a smallmouth.

Garrisons Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the Water Temperature at 46 Prime Crappie fishing is in full swing. Crappies should be migrating to their spawning areas now. They?ll either be up in the final spawning area now or at tributary entrances. Concentrate around 15 feet of water. Fish Primary points at the mouth of the creek arms. Fish Targets at this point instead of focusing on bait fish. Fish trees, shrubs, vegetation, etc. Fishing correctly this time of year will get you snagged quite a bit since you need to focus on making and keeping contact with the cover.

Garrisons Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.
