Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 83 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

- Sadly, there are NO Smallmouth in Arkabutla Lake. It is the wrong type of habitat. Not cool enough and not rocky enough.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water. Crappie will be feeding; however they will not be feeding aggressively unless the other fishing factors are at prime levels. Find some moving water that is clear and you should find some more aggressive fishing.
Arkabutla Lake Walleye Rating:

Arkabutla Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the water temperatures up this high, the walleye will really be moving slow and feeding even slower. It will be extremely difficult to stay on fish and catch good numbers. There will be good days that you can find a good pattern and fill the live well up. The good days of walleye fishing will be fewer and farther between until the water temperature gets back down. Good luck.

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Unlike most North American fish species, blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish are comfortable when the water temperature is this high. They will be feeding and moving in typical patterns. You will start having a little better luck if you can get to some moving water that is adding a little more oxygen for the baitfish and the catfish will be there also.

Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Spotted bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

Arkabutla Lake White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- If you thing white bass fishing is hard to you and if you are having hard times finding the white bass
in the lake than go to the spillway in artlabutla or the outlet channel.I have fished there at times and
catch like 10 sometimes around 20!What you need to use on the spillway is little stick bait that
represents a blue squid and a yellow squid that is what you need to use.I forgot the name which I am
very sorry but what you are looking for white bass fishing is a little stick bait that look like yellow or
blue squid.I am really sorry if you didn't catch fish on it but I do know I used it caught a ton of them in
the spillway.

Arkabutla Lake Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- If you really want to do trout fishing you are either strolling in middle or the deeps of the lake.Or you
can go to the river system connecting to artlabutla lake.And what I woulda use is,well first let me tell
you about strolling for trout.You need to use like squid jig or a spoon.Spoon to me are pretty
effective for strolling for trout in artlabutla lake.And for the river you need to use spinning or fly tackle
and need to use stuff like flies,(for fly fishing)crankbaits,spinnerbaits,and stick baits.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
