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 62 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.

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.

Skiatook Lake Crappie Fishing

[ Crappie Info ]
Skiatook Lake Crappie Rating:
   3.9/5
Click on Fish to Rate This Lake
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):
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!

Skiatook Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

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.

Skiatook Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
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!
