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 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!

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.
Garrisons Lake Crappie Rating:

Garrisons Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water. Crappie will be feeding; however they will not be feeding aggressively unless the other fishing factors are at prime levels. Find some moving water that is clear and you should find some more aggressive fishing.

Garrisons Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the water temperatures up this high, the walleye will really be moving slow and feeding even slower. It will be extremely difficult to stay on fish and catch good numbers. There will be good days that you can find a good pattern and fill the live well up. The good days of walleye fishing will be fewer and farther between until the water temperature gets back down. Good luck.

Garrisons Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
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.

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.
