Lake Burton Fishing Report – February 2024

GON Staff | January 31, 2024

Burton: Level: 7.8 feet 1866.66. Temp: 53 degrees. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Guide Wes Carlton, with Georgia Lake Fishing guide service, reports, “The bass bite has been good the last day or two. We are in a normal winter pattern. The spoon bite has been the most consistent bite lately on the bottom in 28 to 35 feet of water in the middle of the creeks. We have had a lot of rain the last couple of weeks. This has warmed the water temps a little. Most of the creeks have been stained from this rainfall. There has been a significant amount of floating debris in the lake. We have caught some surfacing fish in and around this floating debris on topwater baits, like a Spro Sashimmy 125 in white. This pattern should continue for the next few weeks. Look for the water levels to continue to rise with the heavy rainfalls. Be careful of floating logs. Some of these are submerged.” 

Trout: Guide Wes Carlton, with Georgia Lake Fishing guide service, reports, “The bite has been a little slow lately. We have caught a few decent fish on the main lake channel in the mid-lake area. Look for surfacing action around the floating debris. These trout are feeding on live bait in and on the floating logs, grass, etc. The brown trout bite should continue to get better as we head into February. Jerkbaits cast around the banks and brush will be the go-to technique soon.”
