The fish are really turned on at Skiatook. Shorter days and cooler water temperatures have triggered a feeding frenzy at Skiatook. The fish are trying their best to put on body fat to make it through ... [more]

Elkhead Reservoir Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Elkhead Reservoir at 56 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.

Elkhead Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Crappe mostly disappeared after the dam was rebuilt. DOW had chosen not to restock. There are still a few crappie, maybe in 30 years Elkhead will become what it used to be.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie fishing should be getting good to great now. Crappie function excellent in 56 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!

Elkhead Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- nice to know there are walleye in elkhesd reservoir!! My tip would be to release all walleye so that the population will expand to a population that can tolerate selective harvesting. So the state stocked them? they don\'t do much right but this is a good thing! While im at it...take all the state money you waste on killing pike, smallmouths and whatever else...fish as indigenous as; rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout and create a fishery that will create revenue for the state. the elimination of smallmouths on the lower Yampa, after it had become a world class destination fishery is an example of the ineptitude and ignorance of the people in charge of our resources. The fact that no one can acknowledge that humans are at the top of the food chain, reveals the very ignorance that is behind the decisions being made.It is easier to drink coffee at the local diner than it is to make a decision that may or may not be controversial.Job security is more important than making decisions that may actually benefit humans and wildlife alike. So keep those walleye spawning!1

Elkhead 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.

Elkhead 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.
