  • Lake Hartwell Fishing Report - GA

    LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 7.8 FEET, CLEAR, 60íS

    This bass fishing report is by Josh Panyard

    Bass fishing is fair. Water Level is down 7.34 feet below full pool. As the turnover continues areas of the lake are starting to have that brownish color to them. The water continues to cool with the cold nights and early mornings. With the turnover going on the better oxygen is in the shallower areas so we continue to fish the major creek arms in the Tugaloo. The key is always the bait when we found it we fished those areas with moving baits which include a buzz bait and a crank bait. Some of the creek arm areas have stained water so they are keeping a good bit of fish shallower throughout the entire day. If you move from area to area consistently you can find numbers of fish but if you slow down the numbers won't be there. Also look for shallow brush it has been holding lots of bait and crappie and when we find this we have been finding bass in those areas as well using a jig to catch them. Out on the main lake fish have been anywhere from 25 to 45 feet the baits we have been throwing have been a underspin, small swim bait, jig, drop shot, and shakey head. You will want to cover as much water as you can so keep the trolling motor on high hit the high percentage structure and cover and keep moving in the Tugaloo River. On the main lake same deal keep moving if you don't get bit within the first 10 minutes pull up the trolling motor and move to the next spot. 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.
