Pine Flat fishing was tough .The amount of bass tournaments has effected the lake .If you fish the lake a lot you avoid the tournament weekends and times and go several days after one . I caught 7 Dinks mostly plastics and spoons and most of them have hook marks in there mouths from being caught before . Fish are in the 1lb to 2 lb mark . I caught a smallmouth that was caught on a pignjig that was 2.3 lbs . She had eggs .All bass were released . There is a difference in fishing here when there have been no tournaments for a week .It is my opinion the less pressure the better the bite . 2/19/2016

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Pine Flat Lake at 56 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth 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. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Pine Flat Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I catch them deep at 65 feet in feburary .Most of the time i use live bait as they seldom take artifical lures and jigs . I spent years to find the right spot and they are there every single year for the last 6 years .You can get limits with up to 4lb crappie . Pineflat is not known for its crappie but those that have found out the spot and what to use and technique enjoy haveing this monopoly on the lake . By the way the crappie at pineflat are extremely tasty and clean tasteing .
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie fishing should be getting good to great now. Crappie function excellent in 56 degree water. Crappie will be nicely bunched up still and moving more aggresively than when the water temperature is in the 35 to 50 degree range. With baitfish getting more active, the crappie fishing will be good. Good luck today!

Pine Flat Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- catfish are heating up because I went there may 1st 2010 and caught 12 in 30min.Catfish are spawning this time so you can just go out there and find a spot where there is a lot of vegetation and flat planes under the water.
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.
Pine Flat Lake Spotted Bass Rating:
Pine Flat Lake Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Spotted bass are mostly caught around March through May and where there are many bait fish. They will often bite around 12 o clock and 3 o clock when it is very sunny. The most used and most affective lures are usually plastic worms and crawdads. To find these fish,look for heavy vegetation or trees.
The average length is 15 inches or more. Identifying them is a little tricky with a largemouth bass.To identify,look for three clues the mouth and the color. The mouth of a largemouth bass goes pass the eye while the mouth of the spotted bass doesn't. Also spotted bass has a tongue patch. The color of a largemouth bass is olive green and has a black line going through the middle of its body. The color of a spotted bass is dark green and has a black line,like the largemouth, going through the middle of its body followed by many spots.

- There are trout and kokanee salmon in the lake. The fish do not stay in deep places. They bite on power bait and most of the time the kokanee salmon will eat shad running along the surface on the lake.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
