Lake Greenwood: Lake Greenwood water levels are at 435.54 (full pool is 440.00) and water temperatures are around 54 degrees. Clarity is good.
Unsurprisingly, veteran tournament angler Stan Gunter reports that the Alabama rig continues to dominate bass fishing on Lake Greenwood. Stan says that since water temperatures havent gotten very cold they are catching fish shallow, and on a recent trip they caught 10 or 12 bass just moving down the bank in a creek and casting the rig around docks and other cover. Most of the bass were in 3-7 feet of water. There are also some bass being caught on crankbaits in the same areas.
Bass are also being caught around brush in 12-15 feet of water, and jigs, crankbaits and jerkbaits will all catch these slightly deeper fish. Fishing an Alabama rig over brush is also (naturally on Greenwood) a good pattern.
Catfish fishing remains pretty good on Lake Greenwood, and Captain Chris Simpson reports that drifting main lake flats in 10-15 feet of water with cut bait remains an effective pattern.
Jerking for white perch bite has gotten really strong, and jigging a ½ ounce spoon in 20-35 feet of water Chris is catching a large variety of fish to go with a bunch of perch.
Striped bass fishing has gotten a little more consistent, with fish still being caught pulling live herring and shad on free-lines and planer boards across points and humps. Fish are also being caught chasing season birds and throwing artificials at fish on the surface.
