Lake Weiss Fishing Report February 2017

GON Staff | February 1, 2017

Weiss: Level: 3.6 feet below full pool. Temp: Low to mid 50s. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Big rains and flood conditions are impacted the Weiss area last week. Just before the storms hit, guide Mark Collins reported, “Most bass have moved deeper on their wintertime patterns. Look for bass on the creek ledges, main-lake points, sand bars and humps. They are being caught on jigs, shaky heads, drop-shot rigs and Alabama Rigs. The spotted bass are biting good on rock cover in the upper Little River and Chattooga River.”

Crappie: Mark reports, “The crappie fishing is great, and most fish are suspended in the main Coosa River channel. The deeper fish in the Coosa channel are being caught spider-rigging minnows 18 to 20 feet deep. Little River, the Chattooga River, Little Spring Creek and Tab’s Cove are holding fish that are suspended 4 to 8 feet deep. They can be caught long-line trolling with Jiffy Jigs in 1/24- and 1/16-oz. sizes. Try colors JJ13, JJ17, JJ20, JJ24, JJ25, Mark’s blue and sexy bug. A Float-n-Fly technique and fishing minnows under a float are also producing well.”

Striper: Fair. “They are being caught in the main channels of Little River and the Chattooga River and in the Coosa River by trolling live bait or umbrella rigs and jigs,” said Mark Collins.
