CLARKS HILL IS DOWN 6.1 FEET, LOW 50’S DEGREES & CLEAR
Bass fishing is fair. Bass will be suspending on the ledges on or around all major points. Deep diving crank baits like the DT10 from Rapala will get down to these fish. Also try the suspending 7 Rapala Shad Rap and add four or five storm suspend strips to the front of the bait. Long casts will be necessary for full performance and getting down to these suspending fish. Best bet will be to go about half way up either of the two main rivers and stay off the points and areas around them. Make long casts and crank the bait down fast for the first eight to ten feet then slow the bait down to almost a crawl. Work the area thoroughly then move to another. Early morning to mid day will be the most productive using this pattern. Later on use a blue or black and blue jig combination. Any and all wood structure needs a good application of the jig. The bite at times will be very subtle and you may not even feel one at all.
