Lake Weiss Fishing Report – February 2020

GON Staff | January 29, 2020

Weiss: Level: 4.5 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 50s. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Guide and tournament angler Mike Carter reports, “The main patterns have been covering rocky and stump-filled points with a 1/2-oz. Rat-L-Trap and Bill Lewis MR6 crankbaits in red and chartreuse colors. When you get the more sunnier days, moving up to some of the shallow stump flats and easing around with red or chartreuse Choo Choo Shakers and just wallowing all over these stumps can produce some quality action. The water level is at its winter pool, so navigating can be a little tricky, so paying close attention to your GPS is a must.” Guide Mark Collins reports, “Good. Most fish are on a deeper winter pattern. The largemouth are tough right now. The spotted bass are biting good, and they are schooling up in Little River and the in the Coosa River near Riverside campground.”

Crappie: Guide Mark Collins reports, “Crappie fishing is good. A lot of fish have started to suspend in the river channels 8 to 14 feet deep. Longline trolling with Jiffy Jigs is producing some good fishing. Blue color combinations are working best right now. A Float-n-Fly technique is working well, also. Pushing minnows 12 to 14 feet deep in the river channels is working also. Live minnows on a slip float, fished 10 to 12 feet deep, is working well, also.”
