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):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 64 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):
Smallmouth bass are generally their most active at 64. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the smallmouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day.

Haystack Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- fish under the dock with a jig.
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!

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):
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.
Haystack Reservoir Catfish Rating:

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 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 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.
