Date 22-Oct-16
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Rathbun: The current lake level is 904.81 msl. Normal operating elevation is 904.0 msl. The current surface water temperature is in the low 60's °F. Lake Rathbun contains zebra mussels so make sure to properly drain, clean, and dry equipment before transporting to another water body. Walleye - Slow: Anglers are still picking up a few walleye. Crankbaits work best. Choose baits that mimic gizzard shad. Target submerged points and rock piles. Try minnows and jigs fished in shallow water. White Crappie - Fair: Crappies will start to move shallow as the water cools. Use minnows or crappie jigs in areas with submerged structure. White Bass - Fair: Anglers have been catching white bass casting toward shore with jigs. Rathbun contains wipers as well; these are being caught using the same technique.
