Clarks Hill Fishing Report December 2014

GON Staff | November 25, 2014

Clarks Hill: Level: 6 feet low. Temp: 57-58 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Good. Tournament fisherman Jon Hair reports, “The fish are starting to make a push toward the ditches. Start about halfway back, and fish grasslines with a Greenfish Tackle Big Rubber Jig or a Creeper Head with a Zoom Speed Craw. Try the awesome new color called Clarks Hill Craw. You can get these baits at The Tackle Shop. Also look for schooling fish around this grass and have a weightless fluke rigged and ready to cast at them. Small crankbaits like Shad Raps would also be a good choice.”

Guide William Sasser reports, “Hybrid and striper fishing is hot. The fish have moved back into the creeks and can be caught pulling planer boards with herring or gizzard shad. Focus on pulling in 25 to 30 feet of water in the main troughs feeding the creeks. The winter striper bite is setting up on the upper-lake regions with less hybrids being caught and more and more larger stripers. It’s the perfect time of year to catch that wall hanger. Herring have been producing, but smaller gizzard shad have really been the bait of choice. In the next few weeks, the fish will either be up the lake near S.C. Little River or out Georgia Little River near Lloyds and Rousseau creeks. As the water temperature drops on down, expect the fish to move into 10 to 20 feet of water with the best bite coming mid morning to early afternoon.”
