Rancho Seco Reservoi Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Rancho Seco Reservoi 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.

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

Rancho Seco Reservoi Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon is right around the corner. The gravitational pull is starting to increase with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. 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. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
