Welcome to 12,500 acre Tuttle Creek Lake, the second largest lake in Kansas. All that water can make for some nice fishing. Populations of many game fish species have been enhanced by a stocking program conducted by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. Excellent channel and flathead catfish can be found in the lake and in the river above and below. Worms, minnows, shad, and crayfish are preferred baits. Good populations of crappie can be found in wooded coves and submerged brush piles using jigs and live minnows. The best times for crappie fishing are spring and late fall. Brush pile fish attractors have been added to the lake to enhance crappie habitat. Fair numbers of largemouth bass are caught in the southern half of the lake and in River Pond. Bass tend to stay back in the protected coves near brushy cover, so anglers should concentrate their efforts near standing timber and brush piles. Use worms, crank baits, and spinner baits.

Tuttle Creek Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 80 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

Tuttle Creek 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.
