Lake Weiss Fishing Report January 2017

GON Staff | December 22, 2016

Weiss: Level: 5.3 feet below full pool. Temp: Upper 40s to low 50s. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Guide Mark Collins reports, “Bass fishing is good. Most fish are still shallow on the creek ledges, on secondary points, and on sandbars and humps. They are being caught on Rat-L-Traps, shallow-running flat-sided crankbaits, spinnerbaits and jigs. The spotted bass are biting great in the upper Little River and Chattooga River.”

Crappie: “Fishing is great, and most crappie are suspended in the main Coosa River, Little River and the Chattooga River channels,” said guide Mark Collins. “The crappie are suspended 8 to 14 feet deep over the main-river channels, and they can be caught by long-line trolling with 1/24-oz. and 1/16-oz. Jiffy Jigs in colors JJ12, JJ17, JJ20, JJ24 and JJ25. Spider-rigging with live minnows fished 6 to 12 feet deep is also producing well, and the Float-n-Fly technique and fishing minnows under a float are also producing well.”
