Lake Blue Ridge Fishing Report February 2017
Blue Ridge: Level: 16.7 feet below full pool. Temp: 45-47 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Guide Eric Welch reports, “The lake level has started to rise some over the past month. We’ve been catching some fish on bluff banks and deep rocky banks on the Float-n-Fly. On sunny days, use natural colors, and on cloudy days, throw a bright color with a little pink. The jig bite has picked up. We’re using a 3/8-oz. jig in PB&J or green-pumpkin colors, fished around boat docks and pockets. The Alabama Rig bite has started on these sunny, blue-bird sky days—target creek runs, shallow pockets and around docks in these areas. The largemouth bass are starting to move up during the day in these pockets. For smallmouth, I’m throwing a tube bait and a Strike King 3XD crankbait. Spotted bass are hitting all the above baits, and I have been catching some on a 1/2-oz. Flutter spoon out off points.”
