CLARKS HILL IS FULL, MID 80’S DEGREES & STAINED
Bass fishing is slow. Anglers are struggling on the lake as bass fishing is slow. The water is hot and the bass are only feeding early and very late in the day. A few bass will hit top water baits during early morning. One to four blow ups is about average for the first two hours after daybreak. The best areas are along main river banks and just inside the mouth of coves. Concentrate on banks with medium to fast tapering bottoms and even deeper water very nearby. Use a Pop R, Chug Bug and Tiny Torpedo. Buzz baits can also produce on any given morning. Rip rap along the roads and trestle of Little River are still yielding a few fish. Lightweight Texas rigged worms and jig head and worm rigs have been the best. Try a 1/8 ounce Spotsticker jig head with a green pumpkin Zoom Finesse worm on 8 pound line and spinning tackle. This week the crank bait on docks and boat houses will work. Try a Zoom Trick worm in green pumpkin on a 3 foot leader with a half ounce weight on the Carolina rig. Crank baits that dive to 15 feet or more should also be tried. Some good choices are Rapala DT16, Norman DD22, Excalibur Fat Free Shad #7 and Poe’s 400. Chartreuse combinations like fire tiger, citrus shad and fire tiger has been good.
