Lake Hartwell Fishing Report April 2018

GON Staff | March 28, 2018

Hartwell: Level: 0.4 feet low. Temp: 60 degrees. Clarity: Clearing.

Linesides: Guide Preston Harden reports, “April means shallow fishing. Most game fish are thinking about spawning. My customers will be throwing flukes on jig heads, and we will pull freelined herring. Hopefully, we will be catching largemouth bass, spotted bass, hybrids and stripers.”

Crappie: Guide Preston Harden reports, “The crappie will also move shallow, especially early and late afternoon. A small crappie jig under a small float fished slowly around cover should get bit. March fishing has been very good when the weather cooperates. April weather should settle down, and the fishing should be awesome.”
