    There has been a big Algae bloom over the last few weeks, depleting oxygen from the water, making the fish lethargic. The rain over the past week will probably help the fishing.
    Bass fishing is Fair and the bite is getting slow with all the hot weather and lack of rain, most bass are on deeper cover, under deeper docks and on the creek and river channel ledges, humps and submerged road beds, they are being caught on medium to deep running crank baits, 1/2 ounce spinner baits, carolina rigged plastics, and jigs, the top water bite is fair on deeper banks and sea walls early and late. Some fish are still being caught shallow, around grass on deeper banks. 20 plus pound stringers have been winning the tournaments all year, The Bass fishing on Weiss Lake, rivals Lake Guntersville for the last 2 years. The Weiss Lake Improvement Association and Weiss Lake Anglers, will be stocking Florida Strain Largemouth this fall.
    Crappie fishing is Fair and most fish are on the main Coosa river channel ledges in 12-16 feet of water on cover, and they can be caught spider rigging with minnows. Night fishing is getting good, under lights and over structure, a few fish are still being caught under docks, shooting jigs.
    Striper fishing is Fair and they are being caught in the lower Chattooga River, at the Cave Hole in Little River and Little Spring Creek, down lining and flat lining live shad 8-10 feet deep in the river channel.
    Catfish are biting good in the flats on cut bait.
