Lakes & Reservoirs

Lake Rathbun Sponsored by
Date 03-Jun-16
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Rathbun: The current lake level is 905.96. The current surface water temperature is 70 degrees. Lake Rathbun contains zebra mussels, so make sure you properly drain, clean, and dry equipment before transporting to another water body. Black Crappie - Fair: Crappie fishing has started to pick up. Honey Creek and Buck Creek have been the best areas. Target areas along the shoreline with structure as the fish are moving into these areas. Crappies are moving shallow to spawn. 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, so try areas with big rocks such as the dam or around the bridge at Bridgeview. Walleye - Fair: Troll or drift night crawlers around underwater islands or submerged points. Casting jigs in the shallows can also produce catches of walleye.
