Larto Lake Community Fishing Reports
Species: Crappie
Fishing Rating: 5
Water Temperature:
The fishing has been consistent through the month of March. Our guides have been able to put clients on fish every outing, but having to use a variety of techniques to be successful. The white perch have been spawning over the last 3 weeks but not all at once making the fish more scattered, and more difficult to fill the box. The size of the fish have been exceptionally large as expected for this time of year. If you would are interested in more information or booking a trip visit our website
Species: Crappie
Fishing Rating: 1
Water Temperature:
Larto lake was 3 feet below pool stage last time I post a report. But since then we have had a significant amount of rain and the lake is now about 1 foot above pool stage. The white perch are beginning to move up to spawn but the big females are still suspended out from the banks. Fishing has been good the past week. Over the weekend our guides had 2 very successful trips but fought the wind. The action is heating up and will just get better visit our website to get booking information.

- For crappie here, the peak of the spawn can be from the end of february to the middle of march. It will be good fishing in the shallows through june. The best baits I have found are shiners(minnows) and hair jigs.

Larto Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon is right around the corner. The gravitational pull is starting to increase 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.
