Willard Bay

Rating - Fair   

Wednesday, Sep 21 2022
Fall can be a great time to fish Willard Bay Reservoir from shore or a boat. For those plan on fishing from a boat, check launch conditions before you go as water levels are getting quite low. Walleye and Wiper - Both species will begin coming in shallower as the water cools. Try casting shad imitating lures (white crankbaits and spinnerbaits) perpendicular to shore. Be on the lookout for wiper boils in September. If you see a boil, cast a shad imitating lure into the boil and quickly retrieve it. Many wipers will hit the lure on the retrieve. Catfish - Try fishing a worm on the bottom along sand or muck shorelines. Smallmouth Bass - Try fishing a jig tipped with worm under a bobber 5 to 10 feet off the dike. Artificial lures such as spinner baits, tube jigs, twist tail grubs, and crankbaits can be effective when cast perpendicular to shore.
