"Fishing Report Feb 28th, 2010. Went fishing with my son for a while on Skiatook trying to get rid of some cabin fever. All we did was fish. We did not catch a fish. I am not sure if I even saw a fish on the locator. Ran around the lower end of the lake without as much a a single hit. The water temp. was 39.7.

Skiatook Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- in the summer KVD 1.5 12-20 feet deep
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.
Skiatook Lake Smallmouth Bass Rating:
3.8

Smallmouth bass are generally their most active at 65. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the smallmouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day.
Skiatook Lake Crappie Rating:
3.8
Skiatook Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Try using minnows or jigs near structure in 8-20 ft. (Brush, bridge pilings, drop offs, etc.) They will
bite best early and late. Fishing with submersible lights is exceptional this time of year on skiatook. A
place 15-25 ft deep where two creek channels come together is a good bet.
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!
Skiatook Lake Walleye Rating:
3.3
Skiatook Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.
Skiatook Lake Catfish Rating:
3.5
Skiatook Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full 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.
