LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 2.7 FEET & LOW 60’S
Bass fishing is good. The water temperatures on the main part of the lake is in the high 50's with warmer water in the small creeks and cuts. The small cuts and shallow coves is sporting low 60's for water temps and this is where the big bass are hiding. Look for the small pockets of warmer water near the main river and this is where the bass are roaming. Use the Strike King Spinnerbaits early in the morning looking for that real big bite but are resorting to crank baits for loading up the live well. The water is only a little stained so the numbers of bass will be coming on crank baits. Use a variety color of Shad Raps and Wiggle Warts with the crawdad and shad patterns are best. Use a slow retrieve and cast the baits up close to the bank and work the points and bowls thoroughly. The worm fishermen are finding the watermelon seed is the best color and it doesn't matter if you rig it Texas or Carolina style. Check out the newly flooded areas where the water has come up. Most of these areas have small bushes and green vegetation present and the small bait fish and bedding bass are finding these areas hard to resist.
