Conditions : Lake Hartwell: •Black bass: Fair. Guide Brad Fowler reports that bass fishing had really been picking up, but in the last few days the water has started to turn over and the fishing has slowed down. The whole lake is not turning over yet, but it has started to turn over in certain areas. Apart from the turnover, topwater fishing over deep points has been pretty good over most of the lake and bass and striper are mixed in together. Fish are more or less suspended, and swimbaits and scrounger heads are also catching fish and one day Brad did a lot of good with crankbaits fished off points. This is the time of year when a lot of different baits will catch fish. Some baitfish (and bass) are starting to migrate up the creeks, and the fact that water levels are a little higher than has been typical is also playing a role in that. Finally, be alert to wind direction changes because when the wind changes direction it will change where the fish are located.

•Crappie: Fair. Captain Bill Plumley reports that crappie are being caught at night around bridges 17-25 feet deep in 25-30 feet of water, and some fish are also being caught during the day in the same areas. Fish are also being found in 15-25 feet of water suspended over the tops of brush in about 30 feet of water. Jigs and minnows are both catching fish.
