Conditions : Lake Hartwell: •Striped and Hybrid Bass: Very good. Striper fishing is wide open on Lake Hartwell, and lots of fish are being caught up the Keowee and Tugaloo Rivers. Fish can also be found in the very backs of creeks. A number of techniques will catch fish, including free-lining herring across points, pulling up on points before daylight and casting out live bait on the bottom, and down-lining about 20 feet down.

•Catfish: Fair to good. Many catfish have made a move into the shallows, although regular cool fronts have been keeping the fish from consistently getting and staying very shallow. The best depth range has been 5-25 feet and fish have been found in the backs of creeks as well as in the same depths on main lake points. Fishing cut bait on the bottom has been most effective. A few channels have moved up and started feeding but for now the bite is mainly blue catfish.
