- 08/31 I ran up into the river channel, Wautauga, and found 63 degree water. The water temp at Winged Deer was 80. Moved from the river channed toward Winged Deer until I found the 75 degree water. Caught 2 keepers in an hour. Had to leave and go mow.

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.

- Now is the time to fish where creeks run into the lake (far side of Pickens\' Bridge). You might just hook up with a striper too! I recommend fishing around 10 AM to 2pm. Live bait works best, a night crawler on a hook with the tail hanging. Good luck!

- Same as before, the far side of Pickens\' Bridge between 10 am and 2 pm.......recommend high test line with live bait, preferably night crawlers or shrimp, maybe a shad. Good luck! If you get here when they are hitting, you must fish with only one pole, it\'s that good!

Boone 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.
