Clarks Hill Fishing Report February 2013

GON Staff | January 30, 2013

Clarks Hill: Level: 12.7 feet below full pool. Temp: Low 50s. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Good. Capt. William Sasser reports, “February is the month most 10-lb.-plus largemouth were caught out of Clarks Hill. Look for a prespawn pattern in the backs of creeks.”

Linesides: Good. Capt. Sasser reports, “We are catching stripers and hybrids around mid-lake on both arms. We are pulling planners and freelining with herring and gizzard shad with 1/3- to 1/4-oz. weights. The fish seem to be concentrated in the mouth of tributaries out over the trees on the lower end of the lake in front of the dam. Hybrids are starting to show up. Fish the cable with downrods using live herring in the evening and after dark. Cutbait fishing off the points around the dam is starting to produce some nice stripers.”

Good. “Crappie will move into creek like Buffalo, Soap, Dordon, Grays and Germany for a prespawn holding pattern,” Capt. Sasser said. “Pulling jigs tipped with small minnows will catch fish. Brushpile fishing will also work in the back of creeks.”
