"I went solo on April 24, 2009 for channel catfish. I was able to fish 4 hours and caught 8 of 11 bites. The stringer weighed 27 lb 10 oz. The three biggest were 3.5 lb, 5 lb and 10 lb 2 oz. It was a great day to be on the lake!"

"My daughter and I fished for 3 hours for catfish and picked up one small bullhead. I know it is early and the water is cold but the only way to catch one is to get your line in the water. Early summer and early fall fishing for cats here is pretty good. Our three biggest in 2008 were 7lb 4oz, 7lb 12oz and 9lb 6oz. All caught by my daughter, each on a different day. Many channel cats 2-3lb were caught too."

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.

Octoraro Lake White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Fish in the mourning or middle evening with slow worked small jigs and the best is
minnows. And when that live baits out it\'s the bait for them all. Cold or hot there
like alot of the the regulars u catch from bluegills to crappie. Alot of times you catch
a mixed bag with the same bait.

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.
