Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
At 57 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is in pre-spawn now. It's time to get fishing. Female bass are going to be moving up to the spawning beds. Male largemouth bass will be starting to build the spawning nests in protected coves. Bass prefer to spawn in weedy and woody cover deep in coves that will be protected from the wind and other elements. This is the best time to catch the lake record bass. The female bass will be feeding until they reach the beds and start the spawn. The smaller male bass will be attacking lures also. It is on like donkey kong!!! Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

Pymatuning Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Fished the stump area near the boat launch of Linesville Marina. Water temp was
around 60 degrees. Got on the water at 3:00 P.M. Nice sunny day. No rain. Light
breeze. Had to paddle the power boat about 100 yards from the marina before
being able to use the motor. I wish we had a trolling motor. Water level was
over 5 feet low. Was in 2 ft of water for about 100 yards out from the marina.
Weeds kept tangling the prop. Started to catch Crappie in 6 to 8 feet of water
with shiners and a 1/4 oz weight about 2 feet from the hook. Not too productive
of a day. Was able to keep one nice 2 lb.+ crappie. Used worms with no luck.
Also shallow diving jointed Rapala\'s in perch and fire tigre colors. Still no
luck. Saw one fisherman on lake in a John boat near us. Lake was very calm. Left
for the marina at 6:30 p.m. 200 ft from the boat launch, threw in a large silver
Zara Spook and worked the surface for about 20 minutes. Got some big strikes off
the surface but nothing caught. Lot\'s of minnows jumping wildly on the surface.
Lot\'s of surface action. Will try the Dam next week. My buddy fished the Dam
last week and caught 5 2-3 lb. perch. Nice keepers. Fished sunken humps about 20
ft. deep with shiners and jig rig.

I\'ll report back next week on our progress. I hope the lake recovers from it\'s
low levels by next Spring. The stump area is a very productive area for Walleye
and Musky in the Spring and mid-summer months.

Peace out and happy fishing everyone. :)

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

Pymatuning Reservoir 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!

Pymatuning Reservoir Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Pymatuning Reservoir Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full 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.
