Lake Weiss Fishing Report – February 2009

GON Staff | January 27, 2009

Weiss: Level: 4.2 feet below full pool. Temp: 42-45 degrees. Clarity: Stained.

Fair. Warren Barnes reports: “I have recently been catching some quality fish on swimbaits in the clearer areas of the lake. The Reaction Strike Revolution Shad has been my swimbait of choice. I have been using a medium to fast retrieve, and the hits are explosive. Look for this bite to pick back up if the water temp warms. I have also been catching good fish on the river ledges. Try using the Jackall DD Cherry crankbait in brown-craw pattern or a Jackall Flickshake on a Gambler Giggy Head, and try to bump stumps and debris to get the bite. Cover lots of water with these baits, and you could load the boat, especially late in the day. Try areas around Little River to Cowen Creek.”

Slow. Guide Darrell Baker reports: “We have been out catching a few trolling in the upper coves of the Coosa near Riverside. We have not been catching very many, and most stringers only average 10 to 15 keepers. The fish on the lower lake near Bay Springs have not started biting because the water temps are so cold. The water temperature on the lower lake is around 42 and the surface temp in the coves on the upper Coosa is around 45 degrees. The fishing should really pick up as we get into February.”
