Cowan Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 7/24/10 Right now you should be using frogs in the thick moss and lily pads. I have caught quite a few on a Black Spro Bronze eye jr.,Black Ribbits (Awesome Bait) and Jig and Pig in the thick cover. Keeping it simple. Dont work your frogs to fast. Stay in the shady areas and depth has not been a factor. Catching bass in 1 and 2 ft of water in the thick stuff mostly on points and in the coves, stickin to the basics. Fished 6 hours today started at 5:45 this morning and went till noon. Caught my last one at 11:30 when it was sunny and 88 on my temp gauge. These baits are like shovels you just have to dig em out.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 63 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.

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.

Cowan Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 7/24/2010 Caught a few deep 10 ft min. This lake has no size limit so please use your good judgment before keeping crappie that you might get 1 oz of slab off of. Seen way to many people keeping very small crappie this past spring.

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!

- there isn't any walleye
View Tip Location on Map
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.
Cowan Lake Catfish Fishing

Cowan Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 55-60 degree weather,shrimp,gold fish and chicken livers are the best.
View Tip Location on Map
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.

Cowan Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
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.
