Water Temperature: 82
"Fished days only 08/14-20. Water was very warm (82 to 85 at mid-day) and high. Found three pattern depending on time of day and weather. 1. Caught a few small bass at first & last light pitching green on chrome Rapala countdowns under overhanging brush in creeks. 2. Then fished live minnows free-lined over suspended fish in creek mouths until full sun. 3. Also patterned largemouth in 10-14 ft of water off main lake points with clay banks after rains muddied the shore band. Caught these bass on twin tail firetiger colored grubs on 1/8 & 3/16 inch jigs retrieved slowly out of the muddy water into the clear water. SLOW, DIFFICULT FISHING DURING THE DAYTIME! LOCAL BOYS DOING BETTER DREDGING PLASTICS AT NIGHT (SO I WAS TOLD)."

W Kerr Scott Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

Walleye function very well in the colder water temperatures. Try fishing some open flats and definitely use live bait when the water temperature is this low. Plastics with scent added will also produce results, but nothing beats live bait for walleye.

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.

you can catch, catfish, and this thing they call a stripper??? but it ant...it's a
hybred fish....

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.
