Conditions : Lake Hartwell: •Black bass: Good. Guide Brad Fowler reports that the bass bite remains strong on Lake Hartwell, and again a 25- plus pound sack took the win in last weekend’s Fish the Fall tournament. Overall the pattern remains essentially unchanged, with the best fish being caught out in 35-50 feet of water around depth changes including drops, creek channels and ditches, particularly around the old timber line. Football jigs, spoons, and drop shot rigs are all working. The shallow bite seems to be on the verge of coming on, but overall the majority of the fish are still out in deep water.

•Striped and Hybrid Bass: Slow to fair. Captain Bill Plumley reports that striper really are not doing much right now, and commensurately few people are pursuing them at the moment. While fish can still be caught on umbrella rigs, the best pattern has been free-lining with big gizzard shad. Anglers should only expect to get 1 or 2 bites but these have been big fish.
