Lake Nottely Fishing Report – December 2021

GON Staff | November 25, 2021

Nottely: Level: 13.5 feet below 1,775. Temp: 55-59 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Stripers: Guide Jeremy Seabolt reports, “There have been some nice fish showing up. Most of the fish have been caught pulling large herring on freelines and on planers early mornings. Then we have been moving over to downlines around 10 a.m. or so. Fish are scattered all over the lake. We have also started catching a few fish working plugs on points and shallow humps. The Captain Mack’s Mini Mack has also been working good slow pulling behind planer boards. Going into December, fish will start pushing up shallower, and a 1-oz. bucktail will work good throwing it on rocky banks and points. Look for the freeline bite to fire off, too. Just remember when the water gets cold, you have to slow down some. Pull herring 60 to 80 feet behind the planer boards, or the spots will drive you nuts. Finding bait balls is also key to catching the deeper stripers in December. Also remember the lake is down about 12 to 14 feet below full pool, so be safe out there on the water. We at Lake Nottely Fishing Charter wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy fishing.”
