Boone Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 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.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 65 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Boone Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie will be coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding much more aggressively making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Crappie will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into schools again in the old river channels. It?s time to hit the water. Have fun today!

Boone Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Boone Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Caught about a 4 pounder on the bottom using cut bluegill yesterday!
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.

Boone Lake White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 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!

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.
