Conditions : Lake Rathbun: The current lake level is 914.23 feet and water temperature is 58 degrees. Channel Catfish - Slow: Try using nightcrawlers around areas where water in running into the lake. Crappie - Slow: With the lake being higher than normal, try fishing along the flooded vegetation using a minnow and jig combination or a minnow and a bobber. Sorting will be required for larger fish. Walleye - Slow: Try using crankbaits around submerged points. Also look for underwater rock piles and islands where there is some variation in depth. Trolling or drifting nightcrawlers can also be tried in the same areas. Don't forget Lake Rathbun contains zebra mussels so make sure to clean, drain, and dry equipment before transporting to another water body. Spray boats and trailers with high pressure hot water (above 104 degrees) or let them dry for at least 10 days (5 days in the sun).
