Fished the lake Sunday 3/15/15 didn\'t do well on crappie ( my target) but was able to pull in 35 okay bluegill(dinner). The size limit is only 8inches for crappie, I am starting to wonder if the numbers are now too few with the all the pressure. The one that I caught still had eggs and didn\'t seem ready to drop them.

Tried for catfish today with Sonny\'s in the cove by the pier. Got 4 hookups, but all 4 fish immediately buried themselves in the brush that seems to be everywhere, and I could not get any of them out. One was a pretty big fish by the way he bent the rod over. Was using 20# mono, but I guess that 50#+ braid might work better.

Great time to take the kids out on the lake. All kinds of fish are biting on worms. Pitching a rebel cricket will land fish after fish and the kids will have a great time.

Herb Parsons Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Been to this lake dozens of time never done good this lake sucks!

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 82 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

- There are no small mouth bass in this lake.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.
Herb Parsons Lake Crappie Rating:
3.4
Herb Parsons Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I use to be a none believer of this lake also
until I caught my personal best crappie slow
trolling minnows. Although the lake has depths
as deep as 25 ft. U will find them hanging
around 6 to 8 ft..slow your troll rate down an
wait for that bite.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water. Crappie will be feeding; however they will not be feeding aggressively unless the other fishing factors are at prime levels. Find some moving water that is clear and you should find some more aggressive fishing.
Herb Parsons Lake Walleye Rating:
2.5
Herb Parsons Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- There is not walleye in this lake.
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the water temperatures up this high, the walleye will really be moving slow and feeding even slower. It will be extremely difficult to stay on fish and catch good numbers. There will be good days that you can find a good pattern and fill the live well up. The good days of walleye fishing will be fewer and farther between until the water temperature gets back down. Good luck.
Herb Parsons Lake Catfish Rating:
3.9
Herb Parsons Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Fish the main lake points with chicken livers. Use heavy line. I was expecting 3-5 lbs fish, but hooked into several 10+ pounds that broke me off.
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Unlike most North American fish species, blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish are comfortable when the water temperature is this high. They will be feeding and moving in typical patterns. You will start having a little better luck if you can get to some moving water that is adding a little more oxygen for the baitfish and the catfish will be there also.

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.
