LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, LIGHT STAIN UP THE RIVERS THE MAIN LAKE, RICHLAND CREEK CLEAR, 88 93 DEGREES

Bass fishing is poor. The mid lake area of the lake has been the most productive over the past week. If Georgia Power starts pulling water move to the bridge rip raps with a crank bait or spinner bait and work the down lake side of the bridge. Fish are on the humps on the south end of the lake and in Richland Creek. A Carolina rig worm fished on these humps will draw a strike. You can also use a large crank bait and work the down lake side of the humps. We are in a summer pattern so start thinking deep. You can also find some fish under deep boat docks. Target these docks early in the mornings. Shaky heads have been the best producers on these deep docks.

Striper fishing is slow. There is a top water bite for the first two hours of day light. 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. You can also book your Crappie and striper trips with Reel Time Guide Service at 404 803 0741 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
