Carters Lake Fishing Report – November 2022

GON Staff | October 27, 2022

Carters: Level: 0.7 below 1074. Temp: 64 degrees. Clarity: 6 feet.

Linesides: Guide Eric Crowley, of Lake and Stream Guide Service, “Carters in November is the start of fall fishing. The stripers and hybrids will pull up a bit shallower this month, and this makes them good targets for live bait, artificial and trolling options. It’s hard to beat fresh-caught bait for striped fish, but the big spoons can be just as productive. The 6.5-inch Parker spoon in shatter glass has been hot! Look for groups of suspended fish holding near big pods of herring and shad in the creeks 35 to 55 feet deep over a slightly deeper bottom. Light leaders and small hooks are a must in November with the clearer water.”

Walleye: Guide Eric Crowley reports, “Walleye are schooled up and holding near timber around pre-dominant humps on the main lake. The 60-foot depth contour seems to be the most productive. Live bait and Flutter Spoons are the ticket. Don’t spend too much time in one place. Give them a chance to eat. If they don’t eat, move on to the next mark. The areas around Camp Branch and Doll Mountain are the areas to start looking.”
