Fished Garrison yesterday and started fishing the banks in the front and worked my way to the lilly pads on the front boat launch side with not even a bite.the winds started picking up as I was heading towards the back of the lake when i got to the very back I started catching bass with a green and white spinner bait with a white trailer grub. by the end of the day I had caught at least 7 fish 12 or better one was 4 1/2lbs -2 were over 3 lbs 3 were 1 1/2 lbs and one 12 incher. cold front moved in and the fishing started to shut down. the cove heading towards the back on the left is where I caught 1/2 my fish the rest all the way back in the lilly pads.

Garrisons Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This place is about 4 ft deep almost everywhere except for upclose on the banks.
This place is also FILLED with lilly pads throughout most of the pond. It is
known to either produce nothing, or a 15-16lb sack. I had my luck with suspending
rattle traps on the pad lines. 4 fish for about 11 lbs on july 4 2012, but zeroed
the other time I fished it in late march 2012.
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.

Garrisons Lake Crappie Rating:
2.5
Garrisons Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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!
Garrisons Lake Walleye Rating:

Garrisons Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.
Garrisons Lake Catfish Rating:
3
Garrisons Lake 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.

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.
