LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, STAINED UP THE RIVERS THE MAIN LAKE, RICHLAND CREEK CLEAR, 88 DEGREES

Bass fishing is fair. The deeper boat docks on the south end of the lake have been the best producers over the past week. A shaky head fished under the docks in 10 ft. of water in the shade have been productive. You can still start your day with a buzz bait on the deeper sea walls in the same area first thing in the mornings or late in the afternoon at last light. With the rain the past week and the cooler days the fish have moved some to the boat docks. Some fish are also coming on the deep humps with a Carolina rig.

Striper fishing is slow. Look for schooling fish in the late afternoon. There are large schools of bait on top every afternoon. You will need to do a lot of looking until you fine the fish chasing these baits. Use a popping cork or an inline spinner. Another good choice is a silver or white spoon fished into the schools that are blowing up on the top.

Crappie fishing is good. The fish are in the mouths of the creek and large coves. They have moved into the timber and you can find them with your Lowrance in the top of the trees. When you find them drop a live minnow into the school and start catching. Make sure you stop by Sugar Creek Marina and pick up your spoons and all your tackle needs.
