Iron Gate Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- When Crappie are out of season the best thing is to find a rocky area and drop live or plastic bait in front of (or into if you\\\'re not afraid of snags) with little to no weight. They may or may not take the bait, although they will certainly investigate.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie fishing should be getting good to great now. Crappie function excellent in 52 degree water. Crappie will be nicely bunched up still and moving more aggresively than when the water temperature is in the 35 to 50 degree range. With baitfish getting more active, the crappie fishing will be good. Good luck today!

Iron Gate Reservoir Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Catfish are best found in deep water scouring the bottem for food. They prefer bait that is alive and kicking, so the best strategy is to cast or drop your line as far into the lake as possible. Depending on the type of catfish, the lake conditions, and weather conditions, they may prefer a dark night over a bright day.
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.

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.
