~ FISHING REPORT ~
Broken Bow Lake is still 7 ft above normal, but is slowly falling at the time I have posted this report. The water temps are ranging from 58 to 62 degrees depending on what area of the lake you are fishing. The high water has affected the fishing the entire month of March. However as we go into April and May, fishing will be getting pretty consistent with all species of fish as they try to begin or are in the spawning process.
All three species of bass can be targeted right now in spawning coves or flats. Depths can range from 2-8 feet. Various techniques of soft plastic baits can produce constant action. Daily conditions can dictate what technique to use, so be flexible and adapt to what each day has to offer weather wise.
Crappie are also going thru the spawning process. Shallow depths around brush piles or timber seem to produce the best bite. Artificial jigs, small grubs, and swim baits are a good way to cover water to find these feisty and tasty fish. Depths can range from 2-12 feet of water.
Walleye are post spawn now and are feeding up. Points, flats, and island tops are good areas to concentrate on while searching for these toothy fish. Moving baits such as crank baits, jerk baits, and swim baits will typically trigger them into biting.
Remember as the water temps change, so do the fish, so be very aware of the changing conditions and adapt day to day.
