Lake Rathbun Sponsored by
Date 30-Jun-16
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Rathbun: The current lake level is 905.57. The current surface water temperature is in the lower 80's °F. Lake Rathbun contains zebra mussels, so make sure to properly drain, clean, and dry equipment before transporting to another water body. Black Crappie - Fair: Target areas with structure. Most fish have spawned and have moved out from the shorelines. Try jig and minnows combinations or minnows fished under a bobber. Channel Catfish - Fair: Channel catfish are biting on night crawlers and cut bait. Channel catfish are in the shallows spawning; try areas with big rocks such as the dam or around the bridge at Bridgeview. Walleye - Fair: Anglers are catching walleyes by trolling crankbaits or crawler harnesses around underwater islands or submerged points. Some anglers are also catching walleyes by casting jigs in the shallows. White Bass - Good: Anglers are catching white bass with chrome colored crankbaits or lead heads and white jigs. Rathbun also contains hybrid striped bass (wipers); they are being caught using the same techniques used for white bass.
