Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Lake Rathbun: The current lake level is 903.80 msl. Normal operating elevation is 904.0 msl. Lake Rathbun has zebra mussels, so make sure to properly drain, clean, and dry equipment before transporting to another water body. White Crappie - Fair: Troll crankbaits over submerged points and rock piles. Use small crankbaits that mimic gizzard shad as the crappies are suspended over these areas. Channel Catfish - Good: Use nightcrawlers or cut bait in coves and bays where the wind is blowing toward the shoreline. Wiper (Hybrid Striped Bass) - Fair: Troll crankbaits or blade baits around submerged points and rock piles or vertically jig in these same areas. Walleye - Slow: Troll crankbaits around submerged points; look for areas with changing depths. Try also trolling nightcrawler rigs.
