Lake Blue Ridge Fishing Report February 2018
Blue Ridge: Level: 17.5 feet low. Temp: 43-45 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Guide Eric Welch reports, “Fishing has been tough. There has been a shad kill this year, and we’re seeing a lot of small herring floating around. You can catch some fish targeting deep, rocky banks throwing a Float-n-Fly. I start out with bright colors, and when the sun gets up, change over to a shad pattern. I’m also throwing a tube bait around rock and long points. You can also catch an occasional fish on a jerkbait. If it’s a sunny day around noon, I’m going to throw the A-rig around sunny docks and rocks for any fish that have moved up during the day. Using your electronics, you will see some fish on the bottom and some suspending. You can target these fish with a VMC moon-eye jig head with a Tiny Fluke and also a spoon. The jig bite has been slow due to the lake being down so low. There’s not much structure for them to hang to.”
