Lake Allatoona Fishing Report – June 2020

GON Staff | June 1, 2020

Allatoona: Level: 0.7 feet above full. Temp: 72 degrees. Clarity: 5 feet.

Bass: Tournament angler Matt Driver reports, “The topwater bite is still good, and some fish can still be caught fairly shallow early in the morning. In June, bass transition to deeper brush and rockpiles. This is a good time to beat the crowds and head out fishing after sunset. To locate bass after dark, I like to make long casts over main-lake points with a Strike King 6XD or a Rapala DT10. Once fish are located, I will slow down and use a Picasso Rhino head and a green-pumpkin Trick Worm or a Texas-rigged worm to get into the brushpiles. If you are fishing in the day, the drop shot is always a go-to for good numbers, as well as the jig-headed swimbait. I use the Picasso round-ball jig head and a 4-inch Keitech swimbait most of the time. Try Galts Ferry north to the Delta for best results.”

Linesides: Guide Robert Eidson reports, “Big schools of hybrids can be found anywhere from the S-turns to as far south as Tanyard Creek. The downrod bite is the most productive bite going on right now. Fishing live shad at depths from 20 to 30 feet is producing from one end of the lake to the other. Our bait of choice has been big threadfins. These fish can be found on your Lowrance on or around most points, humps and flats.”
