Clarks Hill Fishing Report June 2013

GON Staff | May 29, 2013

Clarks Hill: Level: 0.7 feet below full pool. Temp: High 70s. Clarity: Light stain.

Linesides: Guide William Sasser reports, “The hybrids are beginning to stack up off of main-channel points and underwater humps on the lower end of the lake in 25 to 40 feet of water. The early morning bite has really turned on with the hybrids in a feeding frenzy and can be caught downlining live herring 20 to 30 feet deep. The larger stripers are beginning to move up the lake and can be caught in mid- to upper-lake creeks pulling live herring behind planer boards 20 to 40 feet deep along underwater tree lines and across points. In the evening, a mixture of hybrids, stripers and catfish can be caught fishing 20 to 25 feet deep near the lower dam by downlining live herring and cut bait. As the water temperatures creep into the mid 80s, expect the fish to move deeper and will be caught downlining in 50 to 60 feet of water on the lower end near the main Savannah River channel.”

Crappie: William reports, “The crappie have moved away from the shoreline after spawning and are in treetops about 10 feet deep in 20 feet of water. Slab crappie are feeding heavily right now and can be easily caught with small to medium tuffies and shiner minnows.”
