Elephant Butte Reser Striped Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Striped bass that are near structure (submerged trees, formations) seem to be more active and willing to bite than stripers that are suspended in mid-depths.

To catch more than one bass at a time, place two or more reflective lures simultaneously on your line at 1 S-inch intervals. Try jigs or jigging spoons.

In reservoirs, look for riprap on shore-lines, rocky points, just off islands, sudden drop-offs, old river channels or sand bars. In rivers, check out places where streams enter, bridge pilings disrupt current flow, above wing dams, or downstream from a lock and dam.

Use a depth finder to locate schools of bass. They prefer sandy or gravel lake bottoms. No matter where you find them, they aren't going to stay in one place long.

Elephant Butte Reser Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
