Fished from shore today, targeted crappie. Used a Big Joshy swimbait on a 1/8 oz jig head. Ended up catching about a dozen black crappie & two small largemouth. All the crappie have beat up tails like on spawn beds. Fun day , all fish released.

Very minimal catfish activity right now too. Sat at the boat ramp in the campgrounds for 12 hours from 9 PM to 9 am on friday. Only a few hits not lands. We tried literally every bait possible. Chicken livers, shrimp, shiners, a live crawdad we caught, dough balls, and night crawlers. Also hit the damn two weeks ago for the deeper water and not even a hit. I know the big cats are there but will take another week or soo till they get really active. STICK TO THE SHALLOWS

Took out a bucket of minnows and caught dozen 9" plus keeper crappies. Had to cull may smaller ones but the fishing was good. Many bank fisherman are casting out to deep water but should be fishing crappie right next to the shore line.

Nimisila Reservoir Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- We just started fishing this lake and were wondering if anybody knows some good spots and lures for
largemouth during the summer for this lake. Thanks,johnny from wadsworth
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
74 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.
Nimisila Reservoir Smallmouth Bass Rating:
2
Nimisila Reservoir Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth 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.

Nimisila Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie prefer this water temperature and will be actively feeding and staying in solid patterns. Baitfish are more active and schooling in all parts of the lake in this water temperature.
Nimisila Reservoir Walleye Rating:
3
Nimisila Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.

The entire catfish family is very active and actively feeding in this water temperature. All catfish including blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish will be looking for their next meal. Itís perfect time to get on the water and fill the freezer. Good luck out there.

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.
