Lake Weiss Fishing Report February 2014

GON Staff | January 30, 2014

Weiss: Level: 4.1 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 40s. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Slow. Guide Mark Collins reports. “The main lake is muddy, and very few bass are being caught. Little River and the Chattooga River are producing some fair fish on drop-shot rigs, shaky-head jigs and Texas-rigged and Carolina-rigged Senko-style worms.”

Crappie: Very good. “Fishing is great,” Mark said. “The crappie are suspended in the river channels 8 to 10 feet deep in 9 to 14 feet of water on the ledges. Long-line trolling with Jiffy Jigs in colors JJ13, JJ17, JJ20 and JJ26 are producing some great catches right now. Casting a Float-n-Fly to these suspended fish is producing great also. Three Mile Creek is producing some fish around the bridge on minnows and a Float-n-Fly. The Chattooga River is also producing some fish casting a Float-n-Fly to the submerged stumps along the edge of the river channel. The fish are suspended in the river channel 6 to 8 feet deep.”

Stripe: Fair. “They are in the main river channel in Little River and the Coosa River. Trolling the river channel with a 1/4-oz. jig with a 3- to 4-inch Sassy Shad at 1 mph to 1.5 mph is a great way to catch these fish in the winter,” Mark said.
