- Rock pile is hit and miss for largemouth bass, but a great spot to try.
View Tip Location on Map
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
77 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.
Hillsdale Lake Smallmouth Bass Rating:
2.1
Hillsdale Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- If you are looking for Smallmouth Bass at hillsdale, you have your work cut out for you. There are no Smallmouth in Hillsdale
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.

Hillsdale Lake Walleye Rating:
3.4
Hillsdale Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Walleye fishing is getting better on Hillsdale. I have caught several decent walleye's while bass fishing here. Jerk baits mostly.
View Tip Location on Map
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.
Hillsdale Lake Catfish Rating:
3.9

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.
