Clarks Hill Fishing Report July 2015

GON Staff | June 25, 2015

Clarks Hill: Level: 0.4 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 80s. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Good. William Hooker reports, “I have been getting some topwater action in the early mornings, mainly on prop baits and buzzbaits around bream beds. The buzzbait and prop bait I use are made locally by Green Fish Tackle. I fished with another one of our locals Wednesday (June 17), and we had five bass that weighed 17 pounds. Some fishermen are dragging the worms on humps and in brushpiles. The guys catching the larger bags weighing 20 to 26 pounds are keeping that information to themselves.”

Guide William Sasser reports, “Fishing has been as hot as the weather. Water temperatures are in the 80s, and downline fishing is on fire. The hybrids and stripers are holding in 30 to 45 feet of water off of the sides of shoals and blow-throughs waiting on schools of bait to come passing by. The best areas of the lake are toward the lower end of the lake from Dordon Creek to the dam and out Georgia Little River from the mouth to Lloyds Creek. As the weather heats up a little more, the stripers and hybrids will start moving deeper and begin to hold off of the sides of humps 45 to 50 feet deep and linger on the lower end of the lake. Once the oxygen lines in Modoc are cut on, expect some easy fishing near the oxygen lines early in the mornings.”
