Clarks Hill Fishing Report November 2014

GON Staff | October 29, 2014

Clarks Hill: Level: 5 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid to low 70s. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Good. Tournament fisherman William Hooker reports, “Most of the fish we have been catching have been on 3/8-oz. spinnerbaits and jigs in the grass. Both the baits are custom-made at Green Fish Tackle for me. I also fished with O’Neal Robertson during the week, and we smashed the fish on topwater baits. We kept a two-man limit of hybrids in the 3- to 6-lb. range and released the 17 blacks in the 2- to 4-lb. range. O’Neal did catch a 3-lb. spotted bass, also on top. All the fish were caught on topwater using Sammys and flukes in water from 90 to 120 foot deep.”

Linesides: Guide William Sasser reports, “The hybrid and striper bite has stayed strong. There is still some downlining going on with fish being caught 30 to 35 feet deep off of the edges of the main channel on the lower end. Good schools of breaking fish have been popping up throughout the lake with small hybrids being caught pitching topwater at them, and some better fish holding underneath and can be caught using herring and downlines. With the weather and water temperature cooling off, the better hybrids and stripers will start moving back into the creeks and can be caught using planer boards or freelines with herring or gizzard shad. Once they move into the creeks, mid-lake areas such as Dordon and Shriver will be great places to fish. Also try Georgia Little River around Lloyd and Rousseau creeks.”
