Lake Rabun Fishing Report November 2011

GON Staff | October 26, 2011

Rabun: Level: 1.8 feet below full pool. Temp: 57 to 64 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Walleye: Good. Guide Wes Carlton said there’s a good consistent walleye bite on Rabun right now. He had a 9-fish day recently, including an 8 1/4-pounder. He said early in the morning the fish will be up shallow feeding in and around brush. He said to fish braided line to avoid break-offs and to either pitch a blueback to the brush or a finesse worm on a Spotsticker jig head. On up in the day, the fish will move out and to the bottom. Wes said to look for them from mid-lake south and in The Big Basin. They’ll be sitting on the bottom in 24 to 32 feet of water. The best way to catch them is to downline live bluebacks. They’ll also hit trolled deep-running crankbaits. Wes said to work an area persistently. Many times it will take several passes to bring the fish up.

Wes said they’re catching spotted bass and largemouths on the south end of the lake up shallow on the points. They’re hitting jerkbaits, and a McStick or a Stacey 110 will do the trick. Fish something in a blueback herring pattern.
