Clarks Hill Fishing Report July 2011
Clarks Hill: Level: 2.7 feet below full pool. Temp: 80-83 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Fair. For decent numbers of smaller bass, fish a Carolina rig on the points and humps, but the fish are scattered. Look for the bait to move up, and the classic schooling bite should produce. If you see bass coming up and feeding on herring, throw a clear Gunfish 95 or a Super Fluke in white ice. Work either bait extremely fast. If they’re busting threadfin, fast walk a clear Zara Puppy.
Linesides: Capt. William Sasser reports, “We will fish live herring on humps before daylight 35 to 40 feet deep and after daylight on points 40 to 70 feet deep. This time of year you can also drift the river channel fishing 30 to 50 feet deep for hybrids. Night fishing in the river channel using lights with live herring works great.”
Crappie: Good. “We will fish mainly in Georgia Little River off the sides of the river channel in 30 to 50 feet of water. Fish on top of trees 20 feet deep with small shiners. Underneath Little River bridge at night works great, too,” William said.
