Pymatuning Lake Largemouth Bass Rating:
3.5
Pymatuning Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Lake is a little low, but the largemouth have moved onto the wood up north. Launched at Wilsons
and covered a lot of shoreline. Big ones are up already not just little bank runners. Caught 1 4lber, a
three 3lbers and lots of other solid fish. Lost a big one too. 11 fish caught in 4 hours. Flipped
Beavers on the wood. 4/0 Gamakatsu EWG, Stren Super Braid 50lb test. Water color looks good,
the rains should help raise water level and bring more fish up. Water temps up north 44-45.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
72 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

Pymatuning Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This seems crazy, but last April around the 10th or so, I was out there with my son fishing for bass. I'm throw a jig around and he pulls out a topwater, after a quick tutorial as to why that wouldn't catch fish this time of year, he was stubborn enough to use it anyway because it was "neat". He caught 6 smallmouth with that thing before I was stubborn enough to switch. We had a heck of a day, went out the next day and did okay with it again but not as good. We were throwing Rebel Pop R's skittering them across the surface. Just work down the bank casting, we caught a couple largemouth too. I can't wait until April, it's almost here.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass are generally their most active at 72. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the smallmouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day.
Pymatuning Lake Crappie Rating:
3.5
Pymatuning Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Fishing from the causeway, either side, depending on the wind. Use minnows (1.5 - 2 inch) Set the bobber at about 7-8 feet. Fishing out about 15-25 feet from the shore.

Bite are coming within 5-10 minutes apart.

Try it about 6:30 - 10:30 pm

Crappie prefer this water temperature and will be actively feeding and staying in solid patterns. Baitfish are more active and schooling in all parts of the lake in this water temperature.
Pymatuning Lake Walleye Rating:
3.5
Pymatuning Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I don't know what happened but I have been catching the walleye pretty good off the humps in the north end of the lake then the smallmouth moved in and I haven't been able to catch an 'eye off them. The talk at the launch is that the walleye are shallower in around 4 - 6 feet of water. People are having success with nightcrawlers.
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.
Pymatuning Lake Catfish Rating:

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The entire catfish family is very active and actively feeding in this water temperature. All catfish including blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish will be looking for their next meal. Itís perfect time to get on the water and fill the freezer. Good luck out there.

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.
