Went fishing last week, caught a really nice large mouth on a rooster fishing the shallow flats. Also caught a hand full of striped bass using the same bait. GREAT LAKE FOR STRIPERS!!!!!!!!!! Biggest so far is 10.75 pounds up in the salt river off the main lake.

Taylorsville Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- try white spinner baits or grubs around brush piles and drifts
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 62 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.

Taylorsville Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- it was a fun gaetting smallmouth got alot of bass 10m and i eat them
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The smallmouth bass spawn is in full swing now. Fishing will become slower but won't turn off completely. If you are fishing for female bass go with plastics and really slow your presentation and stay around the spawning beds. You should be able to find some larger females and male bass on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding and the fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again. Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

Taylorsville Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Crappie are biting in 12 ft to 2 ft range around structure. Cast jigs near the bank and swim them back to the boat.
View Tip Location on Map
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!

Taylorsville Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!
Taylorsville Lake Catfish Rating:
3.5
Taylorsville Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 3 nice size cats yesterday bluegill fishing. worm with float about 6 feet deep 20 yards out in 25 ft of water - pretty odd, but no doubt about them being hungry the way they were nailing it. Only bites when the breeze moved from the east, no bites while breeze from the soutwest.
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.

- Find flats with deep water is close shad will run on the edge of the flat and
up on the flats chasing shad, swim jigs, plain white jigs, rooster tails but
preferred bait of the striped and hybrid bass are live shad stay in water
under 20 feet for the most active fish when water reaches 55 degrees these
fish really get active.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. 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. Have a great day!
