Donner Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Summer Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: Same requirements as spring, but deeper. For beginners, rivers and creeks are the best because "deep" is relative. In a creek, a crappie's summer spot might only be 5 feet from their springtime spot, because there isn't as much deep water to begin with, so bank bound anglers can usually catch crappies in basically the same places they caught them in the spring. In lakes, summer usually means having a fishfinder, or sonar unit, and looking for those "sticking up things" in deeper water. However, there are a couple ways to find those spots even if you don't have a fishfinder. One is a Kentucky rig, which is a live bait rig with a very heavy weight on the bottom that will allow you to feel it when you drag it through a brushpile. The other is, plant your own brushpiles so you'll know where they are. Still, in the summer, a beginners best bet is a shallow creek or river with good bank access.

Donner Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
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.
