Little Seneca Lake Largemouth Bass Rating:
3.5
Little Seneca Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Little Seneca Lake at 43 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.

Little Seneca Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I was up at the Lake fishing for a few hours yesterday. Water temp was 63. and caught two Largemouth and 3 Smallmouth from the shore. Smallmouth were ten feet from the shore in 2-3\' of water. I used live green worms and caught 6-8 perch, bluegill, but could see the bass weren\'t hitting the live green worms. So I switched to a Carolina rig setup with glass bead and a #1 Gamakatsu Worm Hook with a Watermelon Red Zoom bait, but bit off 25% of the worm (head end) to make it a little smaller. I cast it out 10\' feet and dragged it slowly along thwe bottom. Within 90 seconds each time, I had Smallmouth and Largemouth, 10\" smallest to 18\" largest. They were very aggressive with the right kind of presentation.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 43 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.

Little Seneca Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- If the water temperature is low, jogging at the bridge is very good. Me and my buddy go out jogging anything flashy out of his kayak. We catch a lot of crappie anywhere from 5 to 50

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.

Little Seneca Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be staging and getting ready to spawn now. With Walleye spawning grounds generally on gravel and rocky bottoms and preferring clean water. Start looking for pre-spawn fish in deeper waters with easy access to shallow clean water rocky bottoms. Walleye should be feeding aggressively right up until they start laying eggs. This is a perfect time to be fishing for Walleye.
Little Seneca Lake Catfish Rating:

Little Seneca Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Little Seneca Lake Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Ain\'t no trouts in he-uh, good buddy. Too hot for natural reproduction (est. 83 degrees at the moment, 23 July 2013); and the State (MD DNR) doesn\'t stock this water - or any other lake, pond, or stream in the county.

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.
