Lake Blue Ridge Fishing Report – September 2007
Blue Ridge: Level: 9.2 feet below full pool. Temp: Low to mid 80s. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Good. Mark Keaton says he hears that others are doing well catching smallmouths on rocky main-lake points with tube jigs and drop-shot rigs — but he’s not. “I haven’t been able to get on the smallmouths,” he said. He has had some good fall-back fishing, however, by catching largemouths back in the coves. “I have had the best year ever on largemouths on Blue Ridge,” said Mark. “We are catching them back in the creeks around any shallow brush,” he said. “We are catching some good fish in the 2- to 4-lb. range and a lot of little fish, too.” Mark said he has been catching fish on two baits: an albino or pearl fluke, or a watermelon-seed Trick Worm. “Usually the best bite is from first light until about noon, and then the bite dies in the mid afternoon,” said Mark. “But on a cloudy day you can catch them shallow all day. Just go to the back of any cove or cut, and look for brush.”
