Clarks Hill Fishing Report – October 2009
Clarks Hill: Level: 5.6 feet below full pool. Temp: 79-80 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Dale Gibbs reports, “Clarks Hill has gotten off to a mild start for the fall schooling season. Largemouths, stripers and hybrids are chasing threadfin shad and this year’s blueback herring hatch to the surface on the lower end of the lake. The buzzbait bite has proved to be elusive so far. The hydrilla grass is not as thick this year as in the past and seems to be only in patches. The cooling trend over the next few weeks should start the crankbait bite and bring some of the bigger fish a little higher in the water column. Continue throwing baits such as topwaters, spinnerbaits, Super Flukes, floating worms and always keep a Zoom finesse worm rigged and ready for Carolina rigging. School fishing seems to be the ticket right now. Congratulations to Keith Williamson of Lincolnton for stepping up in the recent FLW on Clarks Hill, taking home a strong third-place finish and proving once again our local fishermen can contend with the best in the sport when given the chance.”
