Lake Chatuge Fishing Report December 2018
Chatuge: Level: 5.6 foot below full. Temp: 55-56 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Guide Eric Welch reports, “Fishing got tough. We’ve had a lot of rain and weather changes, not to mention water temps dropping. I’ve not seen any topwater action going on. I’ve been catching fish on the A-rig, throwing it around docks, brush and points. Most of the baitfish I’ve been marking have been 12 to 35 feet deep. You can catch fish throwing the Z-man TRD on a Ned rig around brush and rocky banks. If you see fish off a point, you can catch them on a drop-shot rig with a 4.5-inch Roboworm or a Flex-It spoon. This time of year you can’t go wrong throwing a No. 5 Shad Rap. The fishing should get better when the weather stabilizes and it stays close to one temp for a couple weeks. When that happens, try the Float-n-Fly. Good luck.”
