WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 3.6 FEET, CLEAR & 80’S

Bass fishing is fair. Bass have moved deep on road beds, humps, and points. Up lake, Jackson Creek, Half Moon, and Yellow Jacket have been the prime creeks to fish. Start by throwing Norman DD22's, Poe's 400, or Mann's 20 Plus crank baits. Good colors to use are shad patterns and my favorite the all new Sexy Shad color. Fish are also in brush piles in 8 to 12 feet of water and can be caught in several other ways. The 3/8 ounce Picasso football head jigs rigged with a Paca chunk and Carolina rigs are also just as hot. With a Carolina rig fish a long fluorocarbon leader and 3/4 ounce weight. Down lake, the patterns are similar but the top water bite is better because of the clearer water. Good baits to try are a Pop R, Sammy, and a Storm Chug Bug. Fish these over shallow brush for some good bites. Also, a 1/4 ounce. Shakey head rigged with a finesse worm fished around the bridge columns has been producing some small Spots.

SEE NOTICE FROM THE CORP OF ENGINEERS BELOW.

From the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Due to recent heavy rains, excess sediment deposits have pushed down from the Chattahoochee River leaving silt formations in the lake channel thus narrowing the navigation channel north of the Georgia Highway 219 river bridge. This area is between Georgia Park and Ringer Park. In addition, a large sandbar has formed along the west side of the river channel. Too properly mark the river channel, red and green buoys will be replaced with mid channel buoys (black and white vertically stripped) which identify the center of the channel. Boaters should navigate near these buoys to ensure deeper water. Shoal markers will be installed to identify the sandbar. Boaters should proceed with caution in this stretch of river and always be on the lookout for floating debris.
