If you fish here for hybrids, try using spin jigs and swim jigs around shad schools. Always leave home with at leaste one using this method.

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):
With Taylorsville Lake at 45 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.

- it was a fun gaetting smallmouth got alot of bass 10m and i eat them
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 45 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.

Taylorsville Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie will just be starting their migrating runs from deep river channels toward major tributaries. They will suspend in open water and channels in deep water and cover on the break lines. Crappie will stage off primary and secondary points this time of year while they are getting ready for spawn. Make sure you don?t forget the river channels, especially with structure and sharp breaks in deep water. Some crappy will hang back in this area waiting to come up to the staging areas. Drifting and slow (REALLY SLOW) trolling with jigs and other artificials work great this time of year. Always look for baitfish schools and concentrate more time when you see the bait.

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 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.

- 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:

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.
