Lake Blue Ridge Fishing Report – March 2020
Blue Ridge: Level: 1.5 feet below 1681. Temp: 50-52 degrees. Clarity: Stained.
Bass: Guide Eric Welch reports, “The lake has been a little stained with all the rain we’ve been getting. Water levels have come up fast, and water temps have been creeping up. We’ve been catching fish on a Z-Man Ned rig with a green-pumpkin Finesse TRD worm and a 3/8-oz. green-pumpkin jig on main-lake rocky points and upriver on steep, rocky banks. If you mark any fish on your electronics off points or bends in the river, try a drop shot with a 4.5-inch red-crawler drop-shot worm and a Flex-It jigging spoon. I would also try a rootbeer-colored crankbait around long, pebble-rock points and flats. If we continue to get rain and the lake stays stained, try a 3/8-oz. chartreuse/white spinnerbait with colored blades. On bright, sunny days, it’s hard to beat an A-rig if there is a little wind.”
