I don\'t know what my fishing buddy and I have been doing wrong on Keystone this year. We fished on the Cimarron river twice and the lake twice and all trips we\'ve struck out. The only catfish I\'ve caught was small channel cats and a Drum. We\'d here a rumor like \"they\'re tearing up the blues on the Cimarron at the railroad bridge\" then we\'d drive out there and get set up only to fall on our faces. Tell ya guys, from the small town we live in south of Tulsa Keystone is the closest for us so it leaves us driving a ways just to leave in frustration. Love Keystone Lake but my love is fading away with the sunset. Anyone else having the same issues?

Keystone Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- use h&h black and yellow are the best
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 78 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!

- Anybody know the best place on the lake to get a two year old into some fast pace perch action?
We have a boat .
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.

Keystone Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Tried it a a couple of days ago on minnows, water was still a little chilly. Fished the minnow at about 6\'deep with no success and then tried it at about 4\' with the same results. Even tried for a bit about 2\' and still nothing. I probably should have went again last night before the storm moved through, now it is going to be cold for a few days and I imagine they will head back for 10\'+ water for a few days.
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.
Keystone Lake Walleye Rating:
2.5
Keystone Lake 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.

Keystone Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Flathead catfish, bluecat and channel cat can be caught using jug lines around pionts and river channels. Use live bait such as goldfish or perch.

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
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.

Keystone Lake Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- SPOTS ARE ABUNDANT AT KEYSTONE- A SMALL FAT FREE FRY / WHITE/ CRANK BAIT PARRALLEL TO DEEP CLIFFS AND BOUNCE THE BAIT IN 9'-10' OF WATER- ALSO A LARGE HAIR 1/4 OR 3/8 OZ ROOSTER TAIL IS EXCELLENT FOR SPOTS- YOU WILL PICK UP JUST AS MANY SPOTS ON A BASS TRIP AS BLACKS BUT TO FISK FOR THEM- GO A LITTEL SLOWER AND BE READY FOR A BETTER FIGHT- NOT AS BIG BUT A LOT OF FUN. AND GREAT TABLEFARE
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.

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.
