LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 5.42 FEET, CLEAR, 80’S

This bass fishing report is from Josh Panyard.

Bass fishing is fair. We have seen water temps come up a degree or two with the warmer weather but that looks to stabilize with the long range forecast. In the upper river areas we have found 80 degree water temps and in the Main River and main lake areas we are seeing 82 degrees first thing in the morning warming to 84 to 85 in the midafternoon. The lake is now down 5.02 feet and continues to fall daily with a little bit of rain and cooler weather coming in the next 15 days hopefully this will slow down. Here is what has been working for us: Early in the morning try the mouths of the creek channels and any pockets close by. Look for small thread fin in these areas as we have still seen fish schooling there. Be ready as these fish will quickly disappear. As the sun starts to get high start working your way out to the deeper areas as that is where the bait moves to. When the wind has been up we have been using small swim baits on 1/4 ounce ball head jigs casting over brush on points and humps in 20 to 25 feet of water on the main lake. When there is no wind fish the same areas with finesse style worms in any green pumpkin color on a 3/16 ounce shaky head and slowly work the bait back to the boat. We have only been catching a couple fish from each area so when the bite slows pick up the trolling motor and move to the next. Throughout the day come back to the same areas where you got your bites as you may be able to pick up another fish or two.
