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 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

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

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.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. 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. Have a great day!
