Conditions : Lake Hartwell: •Striped and Hybrid Bass: Good to very good. Captain Bill Plumley reports that striper fishing has been strong on Lake Hartwell, and his boat has had multiple 20+ fish days recently. While he has been trying other techniques almost all of the fish have been caught on free-lined live herring pulled in the creeks, with some fish also caught on free-lines pulled off the sides of main lake points. He has been trying some down lines/ bottom fishing off the points but so far that has been catching mainly spotted bass – soon that should be a productive way to catch striper, too.

Catfish: Good. Captain Bill Plumley reports that blue catfish action is getting better and better. The target depth range has been 12-15 feet of water back in the creeks, but fish can be caught anywhere from 4-20 feet on a variety of cut baits. Even though water temperatures are still a bit cool for them channel catfish are starting to move and some early channels are being caught. Fishing worms or cut herring in 5 or 6 feet of water on the bottom has been the best pattern for channels.
