Lake Blue Ridge Fishing Report – August 2010
Blue Ridge: Level: 10.4 feet below full pool. Temp: 84 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Slow. Eric Welch, of Reel Job Fishing, reports, “The bass have been scattered. You can catch some bass by either fishing a Texas rig with green-pumpkin plastics or by fishing a drop-shot rig with Roboworm in Aaron’s magic color in 20 to 30 feet of water. Anglers should also keep a topwater plug tied on at all times for breaking fish. There has been some some topwater activity in certain places early and late in the day. I personally like throwing topwater plugs like a Pop-R or a Lucky Craft Sammy. Also, if you get a windy day, try throwing a Norman’s crankbait in sexy shad, or throw a spinnerbait. Bass fishing should start picking up since TVA has started dropping the lake. This should put the smallmouths back up on the rocky points. Looking forward to a great fall fishing with the water down. Let’s all practice CPR — catch, photo, release — on these smallmouths during the lake drawdown. Lake Blue Ridge is the last lake in Georgia with smallmouth bass.”
