Lake Blue Ridge Fishing Report February 2011

GON Staff | January 25, 2011

Blue Ridge: Level: 65 feet below full pool. Temp: 39 to 41 degrees. Clarity: Partly clear to stained.

Bass: Tough. Eric Welch, of Reel Job Fishing, reports, “Some fish can be caught on float-n-fly off the bends of what used to be a point, and if you can find any rock. But the best pattern still is paralleling the banks with a Strike King Series 4 crankbait in gizzard-shad color or a Shad Rap. If you see any fish on your electronics holding on the bottom, drop a Flex-it spoon on them. If everything is going right on the penstock repair, TVA says the lake should start filling back up in April. This could be a bad spawning year for the smallmouth due to the water rising and no spawning flats.”
