Fished the reservoir 4/21/13 from 0730 to 1300. Cool mildly breezy day, air temps mid 40\'s to low 50\'s. Trolled w/ downriggers 30\' down at the bottom of the thermocline. Fast action for the first two hours for fat rainbows and browns in the 16-21\" range. Trolling speed 1.5 - 1.8 mph. Fish seemed spread out rather than grouped. When a school was located, they didn\'t stay in the same place long. Trolling lures over submerged points, Strawberry River channel near other structure worked best. Didn\'t work the shallows this trip because my electric trolling motor is out. Trout fishing was excellent last year, seems to be starting out great this year too. Wish the fish cleaning station was open!

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.

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.

- Try fishing with a clear bubble filled nearly all the way, but leave a small bubble of air so it sinks slowly. Add about 2 feet of leader and a size 16 treble hook with some corn or garlic power bait, and you can catch 2-3 pounders regularly here.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
