Do you know when largemouth bass generally begin to spawn in the waters you fish most? Check the map below and follow local weather conditions and you’ll be able to zero in on largemouths from prespawn right on through to the summer period.
Each zone on the map above represents the approximate date (to the nearest week) when largemouth bass begin spawning. Actual dates in your immediate area may vary due to local water temperatures and weather conditions. Note that the dates shown apply to large, public waters; largemouths will spawn earlier in smaller or shallower water bodies. Spawning activity in rivers is highly dependent on the weather upstream, and the spawn may occur earlier or later than in nearby lakes.
