Bluegill are waking up, but the larger fish seem to still be within deeper waters. Though a few small bass showed themselves.

I have for two years now gone out on this reservoir, targeting catfish, trying just about all the techniques that I could read up on and to no avail have had no luck, if anyone has even caught Catfish in this reservoir in recent years, please let me know that they are even in there. According to the DNR website it lists channel cats as part of the variety of species that are in the reservoir, however I'm starting to doubt that claim given my failed attempts. I always see lots of Coy and Carp but never a Catfish of any kind, I think I have at one time or another caught everything that is listed on the DNR Website with the exception of this fish.

Fished the large cove at Becklysville bridge from 9am - 11am 4/27/11. Water is cool. Larger largemouth are already on spawning beds and just getting started so they will be difficult to catch. Slightly smaller males will aggressively take plastic senko / stickbaits - although after a few are caught from shore they will turn off. (The area receives a lot of fishing pressure). From a boat - work downed trees near the backs of the coves. Largemouths seem to be in 2-8 feet of water. Crappies in woody structure will readily take a crappie tube and you'll likely get some small largemouth and rock bass this way. Large carp are roaming the coves and small schools of white perch are feeding right on the shoreline - small perch though. Get out there now!

Prettyboy Reservoir Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Prettyboy Reservoir at 42 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.

Prettyboy Reservoir Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Crayfish work quite well, but using any that aren\'t purchased from a certified bait store is illegal.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 42 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.

Prettyboy Reservoir 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.

- they aren't in this lake
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye function very well in the colder water temperatures. Try fishing some open flats and definitely use live bait when the water temperature is this low. Plastics with scent added will also produce results, but nothing beats live bait for walleye.

Prettyboy Reservoir Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Fish in deep coves. Chicken livers work quite well, though I have not yet tried anything else.

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 aren’t 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.

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.
