Conditions : Lake Hartwell: Striped and Hybrid Bass: Fair. Guide Chip Hamilton (864-304-9011) reports that striper fishing is continuing to pick up. Down-lining live herring 30-40 feet deep has been the best pattern, and schooling activity is coming on.

Bass: Slow. Guide Brad Fowler reports that bass fishing has gotten even tougher as water conditions have declined. Tournament weights are very low, but some random fish are being caught shallow on soft plastics, spinnerbaits and other lures.

Catfish: Slow to fair. Captain Bill Plumley (864-287-2120) reports that channel catfish are still scattered out in fairly deep water and they will eat dip baits, cut bait, worms and more.

Crappie: Slow. Captain Bill Plumley reports that crappie fishing is slow but the best bet is fishing around deep brush or at night around lighted bridges.
