Lake Blue Ridge Fishing Report – February 2010

GON Staff | January 26, 2010

Blue Ridge: Level: Down 15.7 feet. Temp: 42-45 degrees: Clarity: Good; 3 to 6 feet.

Bass: Eric Crowley reports, “Main lake is where the best action is for smallies. Look for dead baitfish to find the fish. Small baits like white-ice-and-silver colored Zoom Flukes, Smack Tackle Flitter Baits in white and black back, or even 2- to 4-inch dry flies with silver or white will mimic these little baits that are slowly dying all over the lake. Look up around points five and seven for fish feeding in early afternoon. They are crashing the schools of bait that are trying to get to warm water coming out of the Tocooa and Star Creek.

“An 8-lb. walleye was caught last week on a Rapala jerkbait in black and silver trolled over point five at 4 in the afternoon,” Eric said. “The points around the marina and around Morganton Point also have produced some nice fish on drop shots with live minnows and Gulp minnows.
