Lake Chatuge fishing was slow today. We used Storm Blue Chrome Orange, Livingston Real Chad, Pumpkin Seed Worms. We even tried our luck at trolling. Went from one end of the lake to the other. Saw plenty of fish on the fish-finder however they weren\'t interested in whatever you presented. Could the \"spots\" have started there spawn.?
Chatuge Lake Largemouth Bass Rating:
3.5
Chatuge Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Water temp is actually between 55 and 57, make sure your
presentation is large and slow. They are looking got a ready
meal without expending to much energy.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 62 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.
Chatuge Lake Smallmouth Bass Rating:
2.5
Chatuge Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- we don\'t have many. you\'ll just have to look in my opinion.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The smallmouth bass spawn is in full swing now. Fishing will become slower but won't turn off completely. If you are fishing for female bass go with plastics and really slow your presentation and stay around the spawning beds. You should be able to find some larger females and male bass on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding and the fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again. Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!
Chatuge Lake Crappie Rating:

Chatuge Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!
Chatuge Lake Walleye Rating:
2.5
Chatuge Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!
Chatuge Lake Catfish Rating:
4
Chatuge Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- a lot of blue channel cat fish around dam or in channels feed by colder water
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.
