Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Shaver Lake at 46 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points.

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.

With the Water Temperature at 46 Prime Crappie fishing is in full swing. Crappies should be migrating to their spawning areas now. They?ll either be up in the final spawning area now or at tributary entrances. Concentrate around 15 feet of water. Fish Primary points at the mouth of the creek arms. Fish Targets at this point instead of focusing on bait fish.

Shaver Lake Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- These trouts really bite on power bait and can be caught on Kastmasters. When fishing Kastmaster, or on any other lures, smallmouth bass will usually bite. The trouts and salmon over here are rainbow trouts, German brown trouts, and kokanee salmons. Other fish over here are bluegills, catfish, and, as mentioned earlier, smallmouth bass. To find rainbow trouts, go look where there is a lot of rocks and where it is deep. The rainbow trouts are the most exciting fish to catch. These fish might not be as big but if you are lucky, you might catch a 20 inch trout. In the morning, the trouts will come near the shore or be on the surface feeding on insects and other foods that they eat. At noon, they will be in the deeper water. When the sun starts to set, they come back near the shore and will be feeding actively. Hope this helps your next trout fishing expedition. Good luck.

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.
