Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – February 2019

GON Staff | January 25, 2019

Sinclair: Level:0.6 feet below full pool. Temp: High 40s to low 50s. Clarity: Stained to muddy.

Bass: Tournament angler Tucker Sweat reports, “The bass fishing is tough, but if you come across the right area you can certainly catch a few in a hurry. The bass are abnormally shallow right now due to the recent rains around Lake Oconee and Sinclair. The water is extremely muddy in the Little River area, with a heavy stain on the main lake as you head south toward the dam. The best baits to throw in these conditions include a spinnerbait, crankbait, jig and shaky head. Lake Sinclair has plenty of prespawners swimming around shallow that are ready to be caught, the trick is finding them.”

Crappie: Guide Allan Brown, of Crappie Connection, reports, “Crappie are good in all major creeks. Rooty Creek, Nancy Branch and Little River are good areas to start. Look for fish to start moving in shallow with a couple warm days. Flats in creeks warm up fast. Troll small 1/32-oz. jigs in shallow water until you locate a good school. Docks are producing, as well. Black/blue/black or red/green/yellow are good choices to start with. A small jig under a tiny cork thrown around wood cover works well also.”
