Species: Largemouth Bass
Fishing Rating: 2
Water Temperature: 69
The weeds have taken over the south side of the lake along with the inlets and from the river boat launch to the flats use caution when entering these areas, you may want to take something to help get weeds of your prop. Large mouth bass can be found in the river channel and are starting to go to shallower water. Crank baits and lures that are sub surface are the best at medium speed but bass have been taken on a hook and worm anchored in 10 to 12 feet of water.

to 7 ft of water. Djfguitars
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
67 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

Lake Isabella Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- The lake has been taken over by weeds, the south side of the lake along with the inlets and river boat launch to the flats are thick with prop tangling weeds. Use caution with your motors. Crank baits that are surface or sub surface are the best if you have the patients to deal with the weeds that you bring in. 6 foot to 8 feet of water with medium speed with green or yellow colors are working this week. Again use caution with the amount of weeds this year guys are burning up trolling motors trying navigate the shore lines

Lake Isabella Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie will be coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding much more aggressively making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Crappie will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into schools again in the old river channels. It?s time to hit the water. Have fun today!

Lake Isabella Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Lake Isabella Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

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.
