    What water temperature do large mouth and small mouth bass spawn on Priest? Does the phase on the moon have any effect?

    Typically anywhere from 60-70 is the primetime spawning temps. Smallies will be at the cooler end of that range, while Largies will be at the warmer end. Like many other factors (day length, wind, air temperature, etc.), moon phrase (specifically new and full) definitely has an impact on sending the fish to the banks to spawn. Hope this helps!
