Canyon Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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!

Canyon Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Canyon Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- catch carp with mixture of peanut butter and bread. then use carp as cut bait
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.

Canyon Lake White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- White bass are beginning the white bass run on Canyon lake. Trolling variations of white and
silver colored shallow crank baits have proven successful. Up river hold the vast majority of the
white bass population during the white bass run. Get on the water between now and the next
few weeks because the white bass run will be over before you know it.

Canyon Lake Striped Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Striped bass at Canyon Lake seem to school near the dam area in late evenings and at night.
Fishing dead or live 3-4\" shad, perch or goldfish 2-3\' off the bottom in 40-60\' have proven
successful. Using this strategy also produces large blue catfish.

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.
