We fished weekday mornings twice in the last two weeks and caught bass and bluegills on 5 inch unweighted senkos. (Weird to catch two bluegills on a fat plastic!). Also caught one bass on a small top water plug cast into the weeds. Averaged about 1 fish per hour each day. We used no electronics and released all fish. Report by exmusher

Water Temperature:
From the Boat Shop go straight across the lake till you hit a rock wall, to the left of the Dam. The water is about 30-60 feet deep depending where you anchor. Drop either any kind of trout power bait or even a good old fashioned crawler down. Trout sit about 6 ft off the bottom. Also..... Heavy under currents make it a challenge so good luck!

The fishing is not that great. It is not guaranteed that you will catch a fish. I just went to Parker Lake and caught nothing. But some other people were catching huge rainbow trout of the end of the dock with garlic flavored power bait. Another fellow was catching smallmouth bass with worms. Another young fellow was catching smallmouth bass with grubs. So over all the lake fishing is not to good.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
At 58 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is in pre-spawn now. It's time to get fishing. Female bass are going to be moving up to the spawning beds. Male largemouth bass will be starting to build the spawning nests in protected coves. Bass prefer to spawn in weedy and woody cover deep in coves that will be protected from the wind and other elements. This is the best time to catch the lake record bass. The female bass will be feeding until they reach the beds and start the spawn. The smaller male bass will be attacking lures also. It is on like donkey kong!!! Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

- Smallmouth do not exist in parker!
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The smallmouth bass spawn is in full swing now. Fishing will become slower but won't turn off completely. If you are fishing for female bass go with plastics and really slow your presentation and stay around the spawning beds. You should be able to find some larger females and male bass on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding and the fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again. Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

- Cappie do not exist in parker!
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!

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.

- Go over to the cove in Parker, and fish in the early morning. Wait for a trout to jump up. Cast in the area that it jumped. Try to hit it on the head. Use a small red and white striped spoon. This worked for me! I caught 2 1/2 pound rainbow trout.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The full moon is right around the corner. The gravitational pull is starting to increase with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
