LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, LOW 50’S
Bass fishing is fair. The lake is full and a heavy stain over most of the lake, Richland creek light stained. Water temperature is 48 to 52 degrees. Richland Creek and Double creek have the best water. When you find the cleaner water a shaky head with a dark trailer fished under docks and around wood structure have been producing fish. There is also a spoon bite on the south end of the lake where Richland Creek and the Oconee come together. Find the schools on your Lowrance and drop a Capt. Mack’s spoon down to the school.
Striper fishing is fair. Striper fishing can be great if you can find the birds diving on bait. If you cannot find the birds, the fishing will be fair at best. When you find the birds think small bait. A ¼ ounce jig head with a small supper fluke, a small rooster tail will work. Keep a spoon ready for when the fish go down. Use your Lowrance to locate the school and drop the spoon down to the school.
