CLARKS HILL IS DOWN 2.7 FEET, LOW 80’S DEGREES & STAINED
Bass fishing is fair. Fish with the trick worms and the Carolina rig. Color will play in important role as the water near the feeder creeks and up in the rivers has a little bit of color to it. The big key is to work all of your baits very slowly. A lot of strikes are actually happening while the bait is sitting still for thirty seconds or more. A Texas rigged Zoom U tale worm fished in brush piles or on long rock points will bring a few good bites. Work the bait slow and be a line watcher. Carolina rigged worm fishing the deeper end of long points or under water islands will also work for a few bites. Using a good dipping dye like JJ’s Magic will improve you chances of catching more fish. Use 12 pound test as the main line with an 18 to 24 inch leader line of 10 pound test on the Carolina rig. Working the bait from all sides of the points will help you find how the fish are holding. A drop shot rig is also catching a few fish in brush. Make sure when you feel the brush slow down and let the bait stay in the strike zone as long as possible.
