Clarks Hill Fishing Report July 2012

GON Staff | June 27, 2012

Clarks Hill: Level: 8.6 feet below full pool. Temp: 78-80 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Guide William Sasser reports, “July is a great month for stripers. The fish will be grouping up in large numbers along the river channel over deep water. We will fish herring and small gizzard shad on downrods over the trees. Hybrids will move up on humps before daylight to feed on herring. Trolling bucktails over trees during the middle of the day catches a lot of July fish. Schooling fish are starting to show up early in the morning and late in the afternoon. The lower 7 miles of the lake are best.”

“We are catching crappie in 30 to 40 feet of water fishing 20 feet down with minnows over trees. Plum Branch and Soap Creek have a lot of fish in them,” William said.
