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.

Lake Isabella Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Use plastics and spinner bates. Am catching a lot of bass large and small with them in 5
to 7 ft of water. Djfguitars
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Lake Isabella 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.

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

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.
Lake Isabella Crappie Rating:

Lake Isabella 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.

Lake Isabella Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Lake Isabella 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.

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.
