Lake Allatoona Fishing Report – August 2020

GON Staff | July 30, 2020

Allatoona: Level: Full pool. Temp: 81 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Tournament angler Matt Driver reports, “Bass fishing is the same as it’s been, and August will be more of the same. The night bite is best on crankbaits, swimbaits and Ned rigs. Fish are being caught in the mid-depth ranges.” Matt was our guest for July’s Map of the Month series.

Linesides: Guide Robert Eidson reports, “Very good, especially for late July and early August. The oxygen levels are falling fast. The fish are migrating south in search of cooler water. The better bite has been over the river channel from Clear Creek to Bethany. Downlining shiners and shad are working equally well right now. We are fishing our boats 18 to 40 deep. Shad are dying quickly on the hook right now, so take some shiners as back-ups. Trolling is extremely affect right now. A Captain Mack fully loaded 4-arm rig pulled 100 feet behind the boat at 3.1 mph within sight of the dam is working well.”
