Conditions : Lake Greenwood: Lake Greenwood water levels are up to 439.26 (full pool is 440.0) and water temperatures have fallen into the lower 60s, with the riverine sections colder than the lower lake. There is a ton of muddy water coming down the lake.

Fresh off a fourth-place finish in the SC BASS Federation two-day championship on Lake Greenwood, and a second-place finish for his son Bryan, veteran tournament angler Stan Gunter of Saluda is just the person to update us on the Greenwood fish. Fishing is okay, but out of about 30 boats only seven individuals finished with a limit both days. It took about 28 pounds over two days for the win on the boater side.

Fish can be caught from 2 feet to 25 feet, and with a range like that as expected there are a bunch of different patterns going. While it’s mainly catching small fish right now you can run docks with an Alabama rig, and Stan says they did catch a 3 1/2 pounder that way. As good at the A-rig is already working, when it’s really not cold enough to peak, Stan thinks that bite is about to get awesome.

There is also another shallow pattern fishing jigs around shallow laydowns and brush, but the best fish seemed to come out of deep water. The winning angler apparently caught everything on a jigging spoon in 25 feet, and the Gunters found their best fish around brush in 15-18, and sometimes 20, feet of water. They caught them on spinnerbaits, jigging spoons, drop shots, Texas rigs and shakey heads. Some of the best fish came on a shakey head, which was outfishing an Ole Monster.

Fish seem to be closer to the main lake in the fronts of creeks to about halfway back, but Stan anticipates that more fish will get into the very backs as the temperatures drop a few more degrees.

Finally, it’s worth noting how prolific spotted bass have become on the lake. It’s much easier to catch spots than largemouth now, but there are also starting to be some big spots in the 3- to 4-pound range weighed in. And even bigger ones are almost certainly swimming around.
