Lake Burton Fishing Reports – June 2024

GON Staff | May 29, 2024

Burton: Level: 1.8 feet below 1866.66. Temp: 74 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Guide Wes Carlton, with Georgia Lake Fishing guide service, reports, “The bass bite has been the best I have seen in the last couple of years. We are catching between 20 and as many as 40 in a single fishing trip. Sebile swimbaits have been the dominate baits with a few bigger fish being caught in chrome jerkbaits. Most of the fish are sitting on a 14- to 18-foot bottom in and around major lake points. The frog bite has been working well in the mornings for some really nice largemouth. Look for these fish to start feeding deeper in the next few weeks. The drop-shot bite will take off in June. Good luck!”

Brown Trout: Guide Wes Carlton, with Georgia Lake Fishing guide service, reports, “The brown trout fishing has been great the last couple of days. We are catching some really nice fish. Try trolling Shad Raps in bright colors at 80 to 120 feet behind the boat at idle speed. Trolling speed has not been a big issue lately. Most of these fish have moved out over the main-lake channels or they are close-by, with a few smaller fish up in the creeks. We have caught a few rainbow trout recently. This bite should continue to get better as the fish become more concentrated over deeper water and as we head toward late June.”
