  • Lake Hartwell Fishing Report - GA

    LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 7.8 FEET, CLEAR, 80’S


    Water Level is down 7.75 feet below full pool. The water temperatures are in the low 80's. The bite continues to be tough out there. We have had to work deeper water from 20 feet all the way out to 45ft. We are fishing humps, major creek arm points, and main lake points and the key with all of these areas is that they have to have some really deep water next to them specially a ledge which has been a key component lately. We have had some blow ups on top water but not a lot of action and we have had to really work at this bite. We have had to really finesse these fish so we have worked the shakey head with a finesse worm and a drop shot with small baits on them to match the bait that we are seeing. Be patient with the drop shot fish we have had a lot of fish follow the bait and not eat it if you get this same reaction first change baits and if that doesn't work change your leader length our best has been 12 18 inches. The key is to be patient and keep moving throughout the day and with this warm weather and water the fish are going to stay deep. Remember the lake is still low and there are a lot of objects sticking up out of the water and not marked so be safe out there and we hope to see you on the water. If you want to see some of the fish we have been catching follow me on my Facebook fishing page at https://www.facebook.com/Josh Panyard Fishing.
