Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 81 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water.

Unlike most North American fish species, blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish are comfortable when the water temperature is this high. They will be feeding and moving in typical patterns. You will start having a little better luck if you can get to some moving water that is adding a little more oxygen for the baitfish and the catfish will be there also.

Rancho Seco Reservoi Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- We went to Rancho Seco on Saturday, April 2nd for the annual Trout Derby Day and it was lots of
fun just getting out - we caught (1) 1/2 lb Bass but saw lots of people catching larger Bass - the
Bass were only going for lures - we saw lots of Trout caught and heard they were going for either
Rainbow Power Bait or fly lures - we fished from before sunup to after sunset - had our best luck,
as did others, on the backside or remote parts of the lake with bigger fish getting caught in inlets or
on open lake deep water
