Lake Hartwell Sponsored by

Water Condition

Conditions : Lake Hartwell: •Black bass: Fair. The pattern remains pretty similar, with fish mixed between shallow and deep water. A significant number of fish are up shallow, either because they are keying on bream beds or just cruising around the old growth from when the lake levels were down. Buzzbaits, frogs and soft plastics will all work. A significant number of fish are also out in deep water around points and humps, particularly those with timber and brush. Drop shot rigs, shakey head worms, Carolina rigs and Texas rigs will all catch these fish, but fishing topwater lures such as Spooks, Sammies, swimbaits and flukes can also call them up. Topwater action has been spotty to this point.

•Crappie: Slow. Crappie fishing remains pretty tough, but fish can be caught around bridges at night. During the day some crappie have also been caught over brush 17-25 feet deep in about 30 feet of water. Minnows are producing best but slabtail jigs will also catch fish.
