Lake Hartwell Fishing Report – October 2022

GON Staff | September 29, 2022

Hartwell: Level: 3.4 below 660. Temp: Low 80s. Clarity: 1 to 4 feet.

Bass: Guide Matthew Justice reports, “Baitfish are on the move to the backs of the creeks looking for oxygen, and the fish are following. Fishing has been good in the larger creeks throwing a squarebill crankbait around rocks and laydowns. Look for bait bunched up to know you’re in the right area. Also, offshore schooling activity has picked up. Look for schooling fish over timber off points and humps in 15 to 50 feet of water. Throw flukes and large chugging topwaters, such as Creek Chubs. When fish are not schooling, fan casting a 3-inch swimbait can be effective.”
