Lake Weiss Fishing Report – August 2021

GON Staff | July 28, 2021

Weiss: Level: 0.3 feet below full pool. Temp: Low 80s. Clarity: Moderate stain.

Bass: Guide and tournament pro Mike Carter reports, “Weiss is tough with these hot conditions. Nighttime is the right time for this lake this time of year, and there’s nothing like a big Coosa River spotted bass slamming a big Choo Choo Lures spinnerbait being slow-rolled along deep points. But if night fishing is not your thing, then getting out at daylight is a must. Cover the seawalls and rip-rap areas before the sun comes up using small buzzbaits, Whopper Ploppers and Spooks before the heat of the day starts.”

Guide Mark Collins reports, “Bass fishing is good. Most fish have moved to a summer pattern on main-lake points, roadbeds and the creek and river channels. Crankbaits and Carolina rigs are working well. Spinnerbaits and ChatterBaits in and around the grassbeds are still producing a few fish.”

Crappie: Guide Mark Collins reports, “They have moved to the deeper brush. Spider rigging with live minnows over brush along the main-lake channels is the way to catch these summertime fish. Also try night fishing with live minnows or cast crappie jigs around and under lighted docks and piers, especially those with brushpiles.”
