  • Lake Oconee Fishing Report - GA

    LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, THE LAKE IS CLEAR ON THE SOUTH END STAINED TO MUDDY UP THE LAKE AND INTO THE RIVER TEMPRATURE 84 88.


    Bass fishing is poor. The buzz bait at first light until the sun gets up Work the deeper docks and sea walls on the main lake. There is also a shaky head bite under and around docks in the mid lake area. Also large crank baits fished off of the south end humps will produce. Use your Lowrance to locate the humps with fish on them then target the hump with the Carolina rig or the crank bait. You can also work the grass on the south end early and late with a frog and you might pick up some big fish.

    Striper fishing is fair. If Georgia Power is pulling water the pipe line is the place to be. Live bait as well as spoons, will produce good fish. You can also find a good school of white bass on the humps up the lake if the water is moving. There is also a good early morning bite at the dam. Live bait as well as spoons will put fish in the live well.


    Crappie fishing is very good. The fish are in full summer mode. Look in the submerged timber from 10 20 feet deep. Live bait as well as jigging will put lots of fish in your boat. Use your Lowrance to locate the schools in the timber and start catching.
