Yates Center - South Owl Fishing Report -
Species Rating Size Baits, Method & Location
Largemouth bass Fair 1-5 lbs. Vibrating jigs, spinnerbaits, or shallow water crankbaits fished near the water willow beds. Flipping jigs and Texas rigged creature baits around the same cover should also be productive. Topwater baits early and late near the water willow beds will also produce. The water is really muddy so fishing is tougher.
channel catfish Good 1/2-15 lbs Using shad sides livers or other prepared baits on wind blown banks should get a few bites.
Walleye Slow 10-24" Crankbaits, swimbaits, or grubs fished slowly along the dam early in the day.
crappie Fair up to 14" Look for crappie around deeper water structure and try using live bait, jigs, or small slab spoons.
