Conditions : Lake Thurmond: •Crappie: Good. Catch fish throwing minnows to shallow brush and casting jigs at the banks. Look in the shallow coves and the backs of creeks all across the lake, including the Georgia and South Carolina Little Rivers. On the upper end of Clarks Hill the crappie bite is very strong. Anchor and cast minnows 2 feet under a float towards little pockets with driftwood and spawning banks, which are characterized by steep sandy or gray dirt bottoms (not clay or rock) with scattered stumps, trees and rocks.

Striped and Hybrid Bass: Good. The stripers are being caught on cut bait and lures by anglers fishing right in front of the dam in the evenings. Fishing down lines close to the bottom in 20-22 feet of water is also productive, and pulling herring slowing behind weighted planer boards has also been effective.
