LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, STAINED UP THE RIVERS CLEAR ON MAIN LAKE, 55 TO 60 DEGREE’S
Bass fishing is good. The lake is full. Start at the mouth of the major creek and large coves and work your way back into the creeks and coves. Fish boat docks, wood structure, and sea walls. The fish are holding tight to cover. Use rattle traps, and small crank bait with rattles fished on sea walls and around docks. Dark Jigs with a rattle, brown, blue and black have been the best colors. Fish these around wood structure on the main river pockets above Sugar Creek. Spinner baits fished along any rock bank will also draw a strike.
Striper fishing is good. The fish are starting to show up at the dam for the spring run. Live bait fished on down lines along with flat lines and plainer boards will pick up fish. If the water clears up the umbrella rig bite will also produce fish.
