Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature.

When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows.

Lake Lou Yaeger Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.

Lake Lou Yaeger Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Channel Catfish and Blue Catfish (if they exist in the lake) are actively
feeding in the shallow coves on dead shad especially during warm sunny days. Try
using shad guts and smelly dough baits. If you do not like the smelly baits,
night crawler worms will work too, because the spring rains often wash them into
the lake and catfish are feeding on them too. On cold days, the fish sometimes
retreat to deeper water. Flathead Catfish are just starting to wake up too. Some
of the biggest fish can be caught on live Bluegills in shallow coves at night
especially in coves close to their deep water wintering holes. Spring rains
means flowing water and catfish take full advantage of this during this time of
the year. Look for catfish to stack up at the mouth of the creeks as they flow
into the lake. The water from the shallow creeks tends to be warmer and also the
flowing water brings food from the creeks to the catfish. Try night crawler or
fresh cut shad or Bluegill for bait for best results. Try fishing both on the
bottom and with floats for fast action.
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The entire catfish family is very active and actively feeding in this water temperature. All catfish including blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish will be looking for their next meal. Itís perfect time to get on the water and fill the freezer. Good luck out there.

Lake Lou Yaeger 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.
