Canyon Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie fishing should be getting good to great now. Crappie function excellent in 52 degree water. Crappie will be nicely bunched up still and moving more aggresively than when the water temperature is in the 35 to 50 degree range. With baitfish getting more active, the crappie fishing will be good. Good luck today!

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):
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.

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 crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
