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]

Cowan Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 7/24/10 Right now you should be using frogs in the thick moss and lily pads. I have caught quite a few on a Black Spro Bronze eye jr.,Black Ribbits (Awesome Bait) and Jig and Pig in the thick cover. Keeping it simple. Dont work your frogs to fast. Stay in the shady areas and depth has not been a factor. Catching bass in 1 and 2 ft of water in the thick stuff mostly on points and in the coves, stickin to the basics. Fished 6 hours today started at 5:45 this morning and went till noon. Caught my last one at 11:30 when it was sunny and 88 on my temp gauge. These baits are like shovels you just have to dig em out.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Cowan Lake at 57 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.

Cowan Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 7/24/2010 Caught a few deep 10 ft min. This lake has no size limit so please use your good judgment before keeping crappie that you might get 1 oz of slab off of. Seen way to many people keeping very small crappie this past spring.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie fishing should be getting good to great now. Crappie function excellent in 57 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!

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.

Cowan Lake 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.
