Lake Hartwell Sponsored by
Date 10-Jan-15
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Hartwell: •Black Bass: Fair. Bass are starting to move a little deeper but water temperatures still have not dropped significantly and it won’t be until there is a string of below-freezing nights that water temperatures will dive and the pattern will change substantially. Overall fish are still highly related to bait and most fish are holding offshore. Fishing in 20-40 feet of water with Scrounger heads, Blade Runners and drop shot rigs can catch fish.

•Catfish: Fair. A few channel catfish can still be caught on herring, worms and even stinkbait, but overall the channel bite has significantly slowed. Striped and Hybrid Bass: Slow. Striper fishing has improved, and fish are moving a lot. They can be found up any of the major creeks and out in the creek mouths. Free lining live herring or gizzard shad is the best way to locate them.

•Crappie: Slow to fair. Not a lot of people are targeting crappie right now, but they can be found around brush 14-15 feet down in 25 or so feet of water. Both minnows and jigs will catch fish.
