Lake Nottely Fishing Report – June 2020

GON Staff | June 1, 2020

Nottely: Level: 2 feet above full. Temp: 71-75 degrees. Clarity: Mostly clear.

Stripers: Guide Jeremy Seabolt reports, “We have been catching some nice-sized fish on large shad and herring. The herring spawn has the fish chasing bait all over. We have had an awesome topwater bite, and freelines and planer boards have been good ways to target the bigger fish first thing in the morning. We have caught fish from one end of the lake to the other, but the bigger schools of fish are still holding in the creeks. Going into June, the fish will start pulling out into deeper water and start schooling up in bigger schools. That means downline fishing is just right around the corner. We will be looking for the fish to start setting up over a 40-foot bottom in the next two weeks. You have to be ready at any time the first part of June to switch up the game. One morning they want to feed up shallow, and the next they’re out over 40 to 60 feet of water. Herring will be the bait of choice in June. Don’t forget to stop by the Bait Shack on Nottely to get all your live bait needs.”
