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.

Swift Reservoir 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.

Swift Reservoir Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- wedding rings, Run a few different colors depending on water conditions they will hit on one color combination more, a green and red combo is a good place to start with a bit of worm or corn. Use a few split shots to get you down to 15 - 20 feet if the water temp is down below 45 degrees, trolling across the points and finding submerged ridges is a good bet. Trout are attracted to flowing fresh water so finding a deep cove with a freshwater inlet is a good bet - this lake is a good producer from May - August, early in the season you can usually catch your limit from the bank without to much energy. From the buoy\'s at the mouth of Eagle creak up stream is BARBLESS hooks only.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be a new moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
