Clarks Hill Fishing Report July 2013

GON Staff | June 26, 2013

Clarks Hill: Level: 0.2 feet above full pool. Temp: 81 degrees. Clarity: Light stain.

Bass: Good. “They are on humps in about 15 to 18 feet of water,” said Jon Hair. “Throw Ol Monster worms in some form of green pumpkin. Also try a pearl-white super fluke and a Greenfish Tackle big rubber jig in green pumpkin.” See the feature article on page 62 of this July issue of GON for details on this pattern, along with 10 GPS locations.

Guide William Sasser reports, “With the weather leveling off, downline hybrids are really starting to set in. Early in the morning until about 10 a.m., the hybrid bite has been as good as you could ask for with nice slabs being caught off of main channel points on the lower end of the lake in 35 to 45 feet of water. With temperatures rising so quickly, start looking for nice stripers and hybrids to be caught in main creek channels in 50 to 60 feet of water. The evening bite has started picking up also with good groups showing up in Georgia Little River from the mouth to Cherokee in about 45 to 50 feet of water along the channel edges. Large stripers are coming from the upper end of the lake pulling planer boards around Russell Creek and Pistol Creek. The crappie bite is staying strong coming from trees in 20 to 25 feet of water and fishing small shiners in the tops about 10 feet down in the Raysville area of the lake.”
