"10/01/10 With the temperature being great - I thought it would be a great day to fish. Cooper Lake State Park: Mosquitos: Didn't fish because The mosquitos are over populated. As I walked to the water: you would see waves of mosquitos flying up with every step i took...worst i have ever seen. Water: Water level lower than normal. Slight wind, but alot of waves. Fishing: Didn't think it to be worth getting eaten alive (mosquitos) Hope to come back and try again in a few weeks. Go away Mosquitos! :)"

Cooper Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Cooper Lake at 49 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Cooper Lake Crappie Rating:
3.5
Cooper Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the Water Temperature at 49 Prime Crappie fishing is in full swing. Crappies should be migrating to their spawning areas now. They?ll either be up in the final spawning area now or at tributary entrances. Concentrate around 15 feet of water. Fish Primary points at the mouth of the creek arms. Fish Targets at this point instead of focusing on bait fish. Fish trees, shrubs, vegetation, etc. Fishing correctly this time of year will get you snagged quite a bit since you need to focus on making and keeping contact with the cover.
Cooper Lake Catfish Rating:
3.5
Cooper Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Catfishing is best in the winter, go deep with shrimp, nighcrawlers, and cut shad, or wait till water is flowing out the dam and use shad in the river. Bring big tackle for the river, 110 lbs blues are not uncommon.
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.
