Conditions : Lake Hartwell: •Bass: Fair. Guide Brad Fowler reports that this is a transition period on Lake Hartwell and bass are fairly scattered. Good numbers of smaller fish can be caught at mid-depths on shakey heads, drop shots, and flukes, but catching bigger fish is a little tough. The topwater bite is still somewhat hit-or-miss, although in the last couple of weeks it has picked up somewhat. In recent tournaments it seems as if the best catches may be coming up shallow, and on certain days crankbaits off wind-blown points have produced. Before long bait should start migrating up the creeks.

•Catfish: Good. Captain Bill Plumley reports that channel catfish are scattered across the lake in 15-35 feet of water, and they will take dip baits, cut bait and night crawlers. Fish are feeding well right now. A few small blues have been caught, but most of the better fish are still out in the trees and relatively uncatchable. Flathead fishing has been pretty good, and at night anglers have been catching flatheads on live bream or perch.
