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 in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 65 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):

GOOD LUCK DBHUNTER YOU CAN E-MAIL ME AT db1hunter@yahoo.com for any info i can help with or just talk fishing.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie will be coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding much more aggressively making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Crappie will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into schools again in the old river channels. It?s time to hit the water. Have fun today!

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.
Keystone Lake Catfish Rating:

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.
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.

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):
In the 65 degrees range, spotted bass are generally their most active at this water temperature. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the spotted bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
