Ocmulgee River Fishing Report – July 2023

GON Staff | June 29, 2023

Ocmulgee River: According to Capt. Bert Deener, “A Fitzgerald angler who fishes the river each week no matter the level (unless it’s extremely flooded) had a great trip recently before it started rising significantly. His best trip was 17 bass, including a 3 1/2-lb. spot and a 5 1/2-lb. largemouth. That trip his biggest five fish would have gone 19 pounds. He had another trip right after it when he thought he would kill them, but he and a buddy only caught five fish. Pretty much all of his bass were on Texas-rigged plastic worms (junebug or green pumpkin). The river has jumped and muddied since his trips, so expect slower fishing.
