Lake Blue Ridge Fishing Report – July 2007
Blue Ridge: Level: 10 feet below full pool. Temp: 72-73 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: “The bass fishing is terrible,” said Mark Keaton. “It is very, very tough. I was on the lake Wednesday (June 20) and fished for five hours and got one bite on a Texas-rigged junebug worm. There was a pot tournament going on that day and nine boats weighed in three fish that were caught on crankbaits.” Mark said the smallmouths have apparently gone very deep. “We could mark a few fish on the depthfinder out in 20 to 25 feet of water, but they wouldn’t bite.” Usually this time of year they will hit a Texas rig on deep, rocky points, says Mark. “There isn’t a lot of deep brush in Blue Ridge, and if you don’t get there early, someone else will be sitting on it.” Early and late there has been some topwater activity, and if you are fishing during the day, Mark says a drop-shot rig is a good pick.
