  • 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. Target deeper boat docks with at least 10 feet of water, use a shaky head and target the deep dock pillions. There is also a good buzz bait bite on the deeper sea walls and rip rap. Also look at the grass flats on the south end of the lake and use a frog.

    Striper fishing is good. The dam at first light is the place to be. Spoons, popping corks and 1/4 ounce jigs with a 3 inch curly tail will produce.


    Crappie fishing is good. 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.

    Make sure you stop by Sugar Creek Marina and pick up your spoons and all your tackle needs. You can also book your crappie and striper trips as well as on the water Lowrance classes, with Reel Time Guide Service at 404 803 0741 or reeltime@bellsouth.net
