Yates Center - South Owl Fishing Report -
Species Rating Size Baits, Method & Location
Largemouth bass Good 1-5 lbs. The water has cleared some so fish should be hitting lures better. Shad imitation lures such as white crankbaits, swimbaits, or vibrating jigs should work. Topwater baits can also be productive.
channel catfish Good 1/2-15 lbs Chicken liver, cut bait, or other prepared baits lakewide, focus should be on wind blown banks or near areas where water is running in during rain events.
Walleye Slow 10-24" Fish have moved back to the flats and channel breaks. Trolling crankbaits and jig and crawler.
crappie Fair up to 14" Crappie are in deeper water, look for them around the Georgia cubes or along the creek channel breaks. Minnows are probably best bet.
