  • 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 80 84.


    Bass fishing is fair. The buzz bait at first light until the sun gets up. Work the deeper docks and sea walls on the main lake. Make sure you have chartreuse in your buzz bait. Target deeper boat docks with at least 10 feet of water, use a shaky head and target the deep dock pillions. Use your Lowrance to locate the humps on the south end 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 poor fair. The dam at first light is the place to be. Live bait, spoons, popping corks and 1/4 ounce jigs with a 3 inch curly tail will produce.


    Crappie fishing is good. The fish are in full summer mode. Look in the submerged timber from 10 to 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.
