I heard there has been a huge fish kill of tilapia in the lake due to the power plant hot water output being changed. Anyone seen this or heard the same report?

Hyco is a great bass producing lake if you just learn to fish it right. That\'s all there is to it. Check out the Piedmont Bass Classics~CBS Quality Cars Hyco Lake Open results from March 9th, 2013. There\'s nothing wrong with this lake. Keep practicing and you will catch them! http://www.piedmontbassclassics.com/2013HycoOpenMainPage.html

I haven\'t fished this month, but all these comments about no big bass left in the lake are completely off. Either you\'re fishing in the wrong areas, or you\'re not fishing the right baits. There was days this summer where in an hour we boated 40+ schooling fish. Over this summer alone, my fishing partners and i caught 4 fish in the 8+ lb range with all fish over 24 inches long, with the biggest being 25.5. We also caught around 10 fish in the 5+ lb range. We caught them in all parts of the lake also. I will say with the water being so clear in the north end of the lake you must use fluorocarbon with long casts, in the south end braided line and pitching is fine because the water is much darker. Our biggest fish were also caught on spooks, square bills, deep cranks, and shakey head worms, with the other nice bass being caught on every bait I have in my tackle box. So obviously people aren\'t fishing correctly or don\'t understand how to pattern the bass on this lake. I\'m obviously not going to say exactly where I caught most of the fish but they\'re definitely there. Someone also made a comment about the lack of crappie, but I caught limits of crappie under our dock every day this spring. If you guys think the lake sucks and don\'t want to fish it fine, means less boats for us to contend with, but I honestly find it hard to believe you guys can\'t catch keeper fish.

At 56 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is in pre-spawn now. It's time to get fishing. Female bass are going to be moving up to the spawning beds. Male largemouth bass will be starting to build the spawning nests in protected coves. Bass prefer to spawn in weedy and woody cover deep in coves that will be protected from the wind and other elements. This is the best time to catch the lake record bass. The female bass will be feeding until they reach the beds and start the spawn. The smaller male bass will be attacking lures also. It is on like donkey kong!!! Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

Hyco Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- use minners and some spoons, small roostertails,fish later in the morning,fish the shade


Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

Hyco Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- There are no Walleye in Hyco lake.
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!

Hyco Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- chum the area u plan to fish a day or two before hand with fish heads and guts from crappie and bluegills and creek chubs
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 affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be a new 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.
