Lake Nottely Fishing Reports – March 2021

GON Staff | February 25, 2021

Nottely: Level: 12.2 feet low. Temp: 44-46 degrees. Clarity: The river and creeks are blown out with mud from all the rain.

Stripers: Guide Jeremy Seabolt reports, “Fishing has been good. We have been on some nice schools of fish. Fishing early morning has been good pulling trout on boards up shallow on the banks where the sun warms the water up first. I like pulling my trout slowly. This just seems to catch more fish in the winter, but as the day goes, we have also been getting on some nice schooling fish holding over a 30- to 40-foot bottom downlining small trout and herring. Just go find where the bait is holding. We have also been catching a lot of fish on Red Fins and flukes working them really slow on points and rocky banks. Going into March, the fish will start to get on the move and start feeding up for the spawn, which means it would be time to start pulling bigger baits and looking for that trophy-sized fish to show up. I will start working my way up the creeks a little bit farther looking for the warmer water and fish that are getting ready to move up. We will be pulling lots of planer boards and freelines looking for the fish. We will also start seeing the crappie getting up shallow to spawn. March is always a fun month to fish. You can catch fish a lot of different ways, but finding the bait and the warming water is the key part of catching fish. Don’t forget to stop in and get all your live-bait needs to catch stripers and crappie on Nottely at The Bait Shack at 696 Deaver Road just 1 mile from the boat ramp. Happy fishing to all.”
