Conditions : Lake Thurmond: Thurmond water levels are down to 319.55 (full pool is 330.00) and water temperatures are in the mid-60s.

Bass fishing on Clarks Hill hasn’t changed a whole lot in the last few weeks, chiefly because water temperatures haven’t really dropped much. Buckeye Lures in Augusta reports that the buzzbait bite is still going on, and there has also been good schooling activity off points in the afternoon. The biggest news is that a shallow flipping bite seems to have developed, and a ton of bass have been caught flipping jigs up under shallow docks. 20+ pound sacks have reportedly been caught this way in recent tournaments.

Striped bass: Guide Wendell Wilson (706-283-3336) reports that he has been catching incredible numbers of small to medium striper and white perch jigging a spoon and fishing a minnow vertically on a drop shot rig. In a few hours they caught about 300 fish recently, with about 65 percent white perch and 35 percent striper and hybrids.
