2014-09-17 The very early morning and late afternoon Striper bite is ON at Keystone. We\'ve been having the most success 30 minutes before sunrise up until 1 hr. after sun up. These fish are keying on small shad in 2 ft. of water. After that I\'ve been setting out jugs for Blue Cats, we have been averaging 10 Cats per trip in the 5-20 pound range. When the jugs are set we continue to Striper fish with live bait on bends in the river channel near deep water. Most stripers are being taken in the 12-20 ft. range. ... [more]

Keystone Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Tried it a a couple of days ago on minnows, water was still a little chilly. Fished the minnow at about 6\'deep with no success and then tried it at about 4\' with the same results. Even tried for a bit about 2\' and still nothing. I probably should have went again last night before the storm moved through, now it is going to be cold for a few days and I imagine they will head back for 10\'+ water for a few days.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Keystone Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
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.
