"10/01/10 With the temperature being great - I thought it would be a great day to fish. Cooper Lake State Park: Mosquitos: Didn't fish because The mosquitos are over populated. As I walked to the water: you would see waves of mosquitos flying up with every step i took...worst i have ever seen. Water: Water level lower than normal. Slight wind, but alot of waves. Fishing: Didn't think it to be worth getting eaten alive (mosquitos) Hope to come back and try again in a few weeks. Go away Mosquitos! :)"

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie will be coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding much more aggressively making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Crappie will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into schools again in the old river channels. It?s time to hit the water. Have fun today!
Cooper Lake Catfish Rating:
3.5
Cooper Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Catfishing is best in the winter, go deep with shrimp, nighcrawlers, and cut shad, or wait till water is flowing out the dam and use shad in the river. Bring big tackle for the river, 110 lbs blues are not uncommon.
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.
