  • Lake Oconee Fishing Report - GA

    LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, 50S


    Lake Oconee Line Side report brought to you by Mark Smith at Reel Time Service. 404 803 0741. www.reeltimeguideservice.com


    The lake is full. The rivers are still muddy, the main lake is stained. Richland Creek is almost clear, still has a light stain. The temperature is 52 55.


    Bass fishing is fair. Small crank baits fished around docks and sea walls from the mouth of the creeks to the middle of the creeks. Jigs and trailers fished under docks and around wood structure in Lick and Sugar creeks have been producing bigger fish. It is a slow bite but good size fish. Richland creek has been producing better numbers and Lick and Sugar have been producing bigger fish. We are still getting a lot of rain and the water color will change overnight so be prepared to change with the conditions.


    Striper fishing is fair to good. The fish are from the mouth of double branches up to the Ritz. Use your Lowrance to locate the schools and you can drop a small shiner into the school. There are a lot of fish in the upper water column. Target these fish with a flat line with no weight on it. The mini Mack fished on a down line at .5 mph have been deadly on the down line fish. This is a new way to fish the mini Mack and it is working very well.

    Crappie fishing is good. Long line trolling is the best bet for catching these fish. Fish a rig that will get you down into the fish which are holding from 10 to 15 feet deep. We have been using a double 1/16 rig. The darker color jigs are working best in the dark water. Sugar creek has been on fire the past week. Also the fish are starting to show up the rivers. Pushing has been the best way to catch the bigger fish up the rivers. These fish are moving daily so be prepared to adjust as the day and the water change.


    Ken Sturdivant, Lowrance Pro Staff, will be at the Bass Pro Shops in Lawrenceville, Georgia on March, 9, 17, 23 and 30, 2019 from 10 am until 5 pm. Dates and times are subject to change without notice.
