Elkhead Reservoir Largemouth Bass Fishing

Elkhead Reservoir Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 64 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Elkhead Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Crappe mostly disappeared after the dam was rebuilt. DOW had chosen not to restock. There are still a few crappie, maybe in 30 years Elkhead will become what it used to be.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!

Elkhead Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- nice to know there are walleye in elkhesd reservoir!! My tip would be to release all walleye so that the population will expand to a population that can tolerate selective harvesting. So the state stocked them? they don\'t do much right but this is a good thing! While im at it...take all the state money you waste on killing pike, smallmouths and whatever else...fish as indigenous as; rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout and create a fishery that will create revenue for the state. the elimination of smallmouths on the lower Yampa, after it had become a world class destination fishery is an example of the ineptitude and ignorance of the people in charge of our resources. The fact that no one can acknowledge that humans are at the top of the food chain, reveals the very ignorance that is behind the decisions being made.It is easier to drink coffee at the local diner than it is to make a decision that may or may not be controversial.Job security is more important than making decisions that may actually benefit humans and wildlife alike. So keep those walleye spawning!1

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Elkhead Reservoir Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.
