"I went solo on April 24, 2009 for channel catfish. I was able to fish 4 hours and caught 8 of 11 bites. The stringer weighed 27 lb 10 oz. The three biggest were 3.5 lb, 5 lb and 10 lb 2 oz. It was a great day to be on the lake!"

Water Temperature:
"My daughter and I fished for 3 hours for catfish and picked up one small bullhead. I know it is early and the water is cold but the only way to catch one is to get your line in the water. Early summer and early fall fishing for cats here is pretty good. Our three biggest in 2008 were 7lb 4oz, 7lb 12oz and 9lb 6oz. All caught by my daughter, each on a different day. Many channel cats 2-3lb were caught too."
Octoraro Lake Largemouth Bass Rating:
3.5
Octoraro Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Octoraro Lake at 53 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is getting ready to ramp up. The male bass will start moving up from deep water toward spawning coves and the big ones are right behind them. This is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. The female bass will start feeding at this water temperature in preparation for spawn. The male bass may be up shallow especially on sunny afternoons. Fishing sunny spawning grounds that are receiving the warm spring time sun is a great way to get a few largemouth bass in the boat.
Octoraro Lake Smallmouth Bass Rating:
3.5
Octoraro Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the water temperature at 53 degrees smallmouth bass fishing is ready to heat up for spring. The bass will be starting to move into their spawning area. Smallmouth bass will generally spawn on rock and gravel bottoms that are protected from the elements. It's time to get fishing and look for staging bass in deeper water.
Octoraro Lake Crappie Rating:

Octoraro Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.
Octoraro Lake Walleye Rating:
3.5
Octoraro Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye spawn is in full swing now. With Walleye spawning grounds generally on gravel and rocky bottoms and preferring clean water. Try throwing reaction type baits up in the shallows. Rip-Rap, damns, rocky bottom points are perfect to hit. Try fishing some faster crank baits and spinners this time of year. As always fall back to the standard walleye fishing tactics, but it won?t hurt bringing out the bass gear in search for spawning walleyes. In this water temperature, always be safe on the water.
Octoraro Lake Catfish Rating:
4.5
Octoraro 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.

Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Octoraro Lake at 53 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Spotted 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. Spottted Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.
Octoraro Lake White Bass Rating:
4.5
Octoraro Lake White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Fish in the mourning or middle evening with slow worked small jigs and the best is
minnows. And when that live baits out it\'s the bait for them all. Cold or hot there
like alot of the the regulars u catch from bluegills to crappie. Alot of times you catch
a mixed bag with the same bait.
