Lake Nottely Fishing Report – August 2020

GON Staff | July 31, 2020

Nottely: Level: 2 feet below full. Temp: Mid 80s. Clarity: Clear.

Stripers: Guide Jeremy Seabolt reports, “Fishing has been of the charts on our boats. The fish have shown up finally, and there are some nice schools. We have been catching fish about every way possible, but the herring bite is the best. We are finding fish all over the lake from Point 8 all way to the dam. Most of the schools are holding over a 40- to 80-foot bottom, and we are dropping baits down to them. The thermocline is trying to set up. The u-rig bite is starting to get good, also. We have been catching fish pulling 90 to 140 feet back at 3 mph. Going into August, the fish will be heading to the deep, cold waters. We will be doing the same fishing tactics as we are now but only looking for fish a little deeper. Please remember the summertime is hard on the fish. Get a picture, and let them go back fast.”
