Lake Chatuge Fishing Report – June 2022
Chatuge: Level: 0.8 feet above 1925. Temp: 72-74 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Guide Eric Welch reports: “Fishing has been good. Most of the fish have spawned and are starting to feed and move back out where they will spend the summer. I’m starting my mornings out fishing flats and small pockets off the main body of the lake where the bass will push the baitfish into during the night and wait to feed on them as they start back out at daylight. I’m targeting these areas with a Whopper Plopper, Ima Stick, Zoom Fluke and a Strike King Sexy Dawg Jr. Since we’re just coming off the spawn, you should also see fish around brush and docks. I target these fish with a Zoom Trick Worm and a Zoom Fluke. There will also be some fish that have already started staging off points and offshore structure. I’m targeting these fish with a 3/8-oz. pb/j jig, drop shot with a 6-inch morning-dawn Roboworm, shaky head with a 5-inch green-pumpkin finesse worm and a Ned rig. Night fishing should really start picking up since the water is getting warmer. That means Texas-rigged worms and black spinnerbaits. Fishing should be good all month.”
