2014-09-22 Skiatook has turned on for the Fall bite. Hybrid Striped Bass are putting on the feed bag and putting on weight for the winter. This is one of my favorite times of the year for Hybrids at Skiatook. Fish can be seen surfacing almost every day. Right now we\'re having good success with live Shad fished on down lines and free lines in about 20 ft. of water. I\'ve got three trips scheduled up there this week and with this weather and the lake in good shape we should fill the box. ... [more]

2014-09-17 The summer time bite on Skiatook has slowed down some from the fabulous spring time bite we had this year. The thermocline has set up at about 30 Ft. depending on where you are on the lake. You should focus your efforts at no more than 30 FOW. We have been having success on Hybrids with live bait in very early mornings and late afternoons. If you are there then you should be able to fill a box with Hybrids. ... [more]

Skiatook Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Try using minnows or jigs near structure in 8-20 ft. (Brush, bridge pilings, drop offs, etc.) They will
bite best early and late. Fishing with submersible lights is exceptional this time of year on skiatook. A
place 15-25 ft deep where two creek channels come together is a good bet.

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.
