Conditions : BLUESTONE – With the cold winter weather predicted, anglers may be limited in their ability to get back on the lake and enjoy some fishing. Remember that during the winter season, fish are still active but typically have a slower metabolism, so anglers should fish slowly and methodically. During this cold weather, bass may be caught in deeper water off rocky points using live bait such as minnows or nightcrawlers. Anglers should look for points that drop off into the main channel and that have some cover such as stumps or logs. Some hybrid striped bass may be caught using large minnows. Anglers should try spots such as at the mouth of the Bluestone Arm or near the dam. A few anglers are catching some smallmouth bass and white bass in the tailwaters. Recently, the tailwaters have been unfishable due to high water. Successful anglers are using one-eighth ounce white doll flies. Anglers should be careful wading this time of year due to the cold water and slippery conditions. Wear your personal flotation devices.
