Obviously no one is doing anything on this site at all. The water hasn\'t been 71 in weeks. It was 78 on Sat, Aug 25th, and the fishing was horrible. Totally dead.Gorgeous day, but lousy fishing. The water level is dropping rapidly (down probably 11 inches) so lots of rocks showing. Somebody call me when the water temp gets back to 71. Andy

I went there last year and caught 4 in one night.All an estimated 2 pounds. They are out around 9pm-7am in water about 5-15 feet deep. You can chum with wet dog food.For bait you can use pretty much anything that has a strong smell(I used decaying fish).To chum you just toss a hand full in the water.

Seems like the fishing has dropped off. Fish caught are smaller than earlier in the month and a 10 catch day is becoming more prevalent. What should we be doing to get the 2+ lbers and upping the count or have we descended into the summer doldrums? Suggestions appreciated. June 29 was a stunning day on Squam. The eagles are still on Loon Island. Andy and Toni

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
74 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

Squam Lake Walleye Rating:

Squam Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.
Squam Lake Catfish Rating:
2.7
Squam Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The entire catfish family is very active and actively feeding in this water temperature. All catfish including blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish will be looking for their next meal. Itís perfect time to get on the water and fill the freezer. Good luck out there.

Squam Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

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.
