Lake Chatuge Fishing Report – February 2022

GON Staff | January 28, 2022

Chatuge: Level: 7.3 feet below 1925. Temp: 47-49 degrees. Clarity: Clear. 

Bass: Guide Eric Welch reports: “Fishing has been fair. We’ve had all kinds of weather changes the past month, cold days and nights, then back to mid 70s in the day. The lake is at winter pool, and the fish are scattered. I’ve been catching fish using a drop shot out on deep banks and long points, also on a Ned rig and a shaky head with a 5-inch finesse worm. We’ve been getting some fish on a jerkbait out on points and around docks. Try throwing a jig around any brush or docks. I have also been marking a lot of fish deep in 20 to 35 feet of water. These fish are in areas where there is a ditch, drop-off or a long point. I target these fish with a Texas rig, shaky head, Ned rig and a drop shot. The water temps are about right to start fishing the Float-n-Fly. If you’ve never fished this technique, it’s amazing what size fish you can catch in the winter on the rig. A crankbait and the A-rig are also catching fish. Good luck.”
