Pymatuning Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Pymatuning Lake at 54 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is getting ready to ramp up. The male bass will start moving up from deep water toward spawning coves and the big ones are right behind them. This is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. The female bass will start feeding at this water temperature in preparation for spawn. The male bass may be up shallow especially on sunny afternoons. Fishing sunny spawning grounds that are receiving the warm spring time sun is a great way to get a few largemouth bass in the boat.

Pymatuning Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This seems crazy, but last April around the 10th or so, I was out there with my son fishing for bass. I'm throw a jig around and he pulls out a topwater, after a quick tutorial as to why that wouldn't catch fish this time of year, he was stubborn enough to use it anyway because it was "neat". He caught 6 smallmouth with that thing before I was stubborn enough to switch. We had a heck of a day, went out the next day and did okay with it again but not as good. We were throwing Rebel Pop R's skittering them across the surface. Just work down the bank casting, we caught a couple largemouth too. I can't wait until April, it's almost here.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the water temperature at 54 degrees smallmouth bass fishing is ready to heat up for spring. The bass will be starting to move into their spawning area. Smallmouth bass will generally spawn on rock and gravel bottoms that are protected from the elements. It's time to get fishing and look for staging bass in deeper water.

Pymatuning Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Fishing from the causeway, either side, depending on the wind. Use minnows (1.5 - 2 inch) Set the bobber at about 7-8 feet. Fishing out about 15-25 feet from the shore.

Bite are coming within 5-10 minutes apart.

Try it about 6:30 - 10:30 pm

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

Pymatuning Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I don't know what happened but I have been catching the walleye pretty good off the humps in the north end of the lake then the smallmouth moved in and I haven't been able to catch an 'eye off them. The talk at the launch is that the walleye are shallower in around 4 - 6 feet of water. People are having success with nightcrawlers.
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

Pymatuning Lake 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.

With Pymatuning Lake at 54 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Spotted 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. Spottted Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.
