Haystack Reservoir Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Dont come here for the Trout, you can expect to catch bass and bullhead catfish. Trout fishing here sucks. You'll also see lots of trash around the camp and floating in the lake. If you are coming to this resevoir you might as well leave your trout bait at home. Spooning for bass works well by the rocky bank of the lake, dont dont expect alot of action, or any big fish. I would NOT recromend anyone coming here to fish.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Haystack Reservoir at 47 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 47 degrees. It's time to fish deep and slow. Try some deep primary points, drop offs, and old river channels with rocks. Jigs, plastics and deep jerk baits will be your best bet to boat a smallmouth.

Haystack Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- fish under the dock with a jig.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the Water Temperature at 47 Prime Crappie fishing is in full swing. Crappies should be migrating to their spawning areas now. They?ll either be up in the final spawning area now or at tributary entrances. Concentrate around 15 feet of water. Fish Primary points at the mouth of the creek arms. Fish Targets at this point instead of focusing on bait fish. Fish trees, shrubs, vegetation, etc. Fishing correctly this time of year will get you snagged quite a bit since you need to focus on making and keeping contact with the cover.

Haystack Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- i have been fishing at Haystack since i was a little boy and i never have once even herd of or seen anyone pull a walleye out of the lake.
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be staging and getting ready to spawn now. With Walleye spawning grounds generally on gravel and rocky bottoms and preferring clean water. Start looking for pre-spawn fish in deeper waters with easy access to shallow clean water rocky bottoms. Walleye should be feeding aggressively right up until they start laying eggs. This is a perfect time to be fishing for Walleye.

Haystack Reservoir Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- The best time to fish for catfish is at dark. you want it to be completely black outside. go down to the shore and build a fire next to the lake. cast your pole out in the light with a worm on and you will catch catfish all night long one right after the other. Its a blast.
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

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!
