Tom Steed Fishing Report

Lake Tom Steed Oklahoma Fishing Report by Mike Diehl
Future Pro Mike Diehl sends us this report from Lake Tom Steed:

With all the crazy weather the bite has been on and off at Tom Steed – but mostly off. The water temps have warmed to high 50’s low 60’s and fishing is picking up a bit.

Crappie are biting on minnows anywhere from just off the bank to around 10 feet. The hybrid are some what scattered, but small schools can be found. The walleye are biting slowly, but can be caught trolling and on jigs and minnows. The largemouth bass should be staging for the spawn, but bass fishing at Steed just hasn’t been the same since we ended the drought last year with all that rain.

I haven’t been out fishing in about two months so I felt fortunate to boat a small largemouth bass and five hybrids.

Editor’s Note: Thanks for the report Mike! Hang in there on the largemouth bass fishing. According to everything I’ve read and heard, the big rains after the drought will make for good habitat for the bass and fishing should rebound for you shortly. Looking forward to our Lake Altus-Lugert trip this weekend!
