I fish here often and the Bass and bluegills are almost non existent. I have found gizzard shad and crappie to be abundant and some smallmouth bass in the river if you can get there at the right time. Catfish are also abundant but not any size at least good eaters that is, no walleye that I have ever seen have come form this lake maybe 20 years ago but none of recent times.

Water is VERY murky. Can\'t see the bottom of the live well at this point. Levels are still very low but should be coming up any day now. Some branches and limbs are floating about but no major logs yet. That, too, should be here any day. Crappy are hitting on active baits at 1\'-2\' deep. A week ago they could be found deeper but the water clarity is making that all but impossible now. Bass are getting active and are to be found shallow.

Caught (36) crappie between the two of us. Bobber was set at 9 feet, using minnows. Fish are post spawn, and gradually moving to deeper water. Water is full of loose timber and logs, so be on the lookout. Happy Fishing!
Mississinewa Reservo Largemouth Bass Rating:
Mississinewa Reservo Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Mississinewa Reservo at 40 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. 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. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 40 degrees. It's time to fish deep and slow. Try some deep primary points, drop offs, and old river channels with rocks. Jigs, plastics and deep jerk baits will be your best bet to boat a smallmouth.
Mississinewa Reservo Crappie Rating:
Mississinewa Reservo 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.
Mississinewa Reservo Walleye Rating:
Mississinewa Reservo Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye function very well in the colder water temperatures. Try fishing some open flats and definitely use live bait when the water temperature is this low. Plastics with scent added will also produce results, but nothing beats live bait for walleye.
Mississinewa Reservo Catfish Rating:
Mississinewa Reservo 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.
