LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, MID 70’S DEGREES

Bass fishing is fair good. The lake is full water temperature is 70 to 75 degrees. It is stained up the rivers and clear on the rest of the lake. The fish are starting to move into the coves and creeks. Shad Raps fished around docks at the mouths of the creeks and large coves. Rat L Traps fished in the same locations will also produce. A Texas rigged dark green worm fished under the same docks has also produced fish over the past week. Fishing the bridge rip rap with a white and chartreuse spinner bait when Georgia Power is pulling water. You can also use the same shad rap or rattle trap on the bridge rip rap.   Line side fishing report by Mark Smith of Reel Time service. This email address is being protected from spambots.

Striper fishing is good. The fish are showing up in the river bend area of the lake and the mouths of the major creeks. You can troll a shad rap or a rattle trap and pick up a few fish. The best bait has been live shad or shiners. Fish them on down lines and flat lines with plainer boards. Use your Lowrance to locate the large schools of bait and the stripers will be close by.   Crappie fishing is good. The fish are starting to move into the mouths of the creeks. Look for brush piles in the mouths of the creeks and when you find the fish in the timber drop a minnow down. Most fish are in 10 to 20 ft. deep.   Make sure you stop by Sugar Creek Marina and pick up your spoons and all your tackle needs.
