  • Lake Allatoona Fishing Report - GA

    LAKE ALLATOONA IS DOWN 12.5 FEET, 40’S, CLEAR


    Bass fishing is feast or famine. Allatoona bass are typically out deeper, but not always. We had a massive shad kill back in January due to extremely cold water temps that reached the high 30s. We tend to see shad kills when water temperatures drop below 42 degrees. At the beginning of the month, we have seen a slight increase in temperatures and a good bit of fish temporarily move shallow. When we have temporary warm ups in the winter, the slightly stained shallow water heats up faster, so fish can be caught on shallow running crankbaits, lipless crankbaits and even on Chatterbaits. When the water temperatures drop back off, or we have a major cold front, fish will suspend back out at the mouths of creeks and on bluff walls. My go to for cold conditions is a Picasso tungsten finesse football head and a tungsten jig head with a Big Bite green pumpkin finesse worm. Work the bait slowly for best results. Use light line, like Sunline Sniper Fluorocarbon. When the water temperature is below 50 degrees and clear, the Red Rooster cotton candy Float n Fly is hard to beat. As temperatures warm, the Spro McStick and the Alabama Rig are great ways to locate spotted bass that are in transition. On the Alabama rig use a 3.5 inch Big Bite Cane Thumper on a 3/16 ounce jig head. Fish from the mouth to a third of the way back in the creeks. The best locations this time of year are around Little River, Illinois Creek and Iron Hill. Be safe, and remember that hypothermia is a killer. Don’t fish alone.
