Welcome to 12,500 acre Tuttle Creek Lake, the second largest lake in Kansas. All that water can make for some nice fishing. Populations of many game fish species have been enhanced by a stocking program conducted by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. Excellent channel and flathead catfish can be found in the lake and in the river above and below. Worms, minnows, shad, and crayfish are preferred baits. Good populations of crappie can be found in wooded coves and submerged brush piles using jigs and live minnows. The best times for crappie fishing are spring and late fall. Brush pile fish attractors have been added to the lake to enhance crappie habitat. Fair numbers of largemouth bass are caught in the southern half of the lake and in River Pond. Bass tend to stay back in the protected coves near brushy cover, so anglers should concentrate their efforts near standing timber and brush piles. Use worms, crank baits, and spinner baits.

Tuttle Creek Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon has just past. The gravitational pull is starting to decrease with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
