Conditions : Lake Wylie: Lake Wylie is at 96.4 percent of full pool and water temperatures range from the mid- to high-40s. The lake is fairly clear, but rain predicted in the next day or two should change that.

On most of the South Carolina lakes water temperatures are unseasonably warm and bass are barely if at all in a winter pattern, but Guide and FLW Angler Bryan New (704-421-5868) reminds anglers that a couple of weeks ago the Lake Wylie area had (limited) snow and brutally cold temperatures. It didn’t get above freezing for a day or two, and a result water temperatures are still way down. Perhaps because of the seasonably cold temperatures, Lake Wylie bass are doing what they are supposed to do in the winter and biting pretty well. Alabama rigs and jerkbaits are the best baits, and the 10-30 foot range has been the most successful. Bryan still advises looking for funnels or creek channels that narrow down, but he reports that the steeper stuff is getting better as fish are more likely to be holding on the steep part of creek banks. Of course, in a few weeks they will start to go the other direction and stage up for the pre-spawn.

While a few fish have been caught on shallow-running crankbaits, that bite has been a little slow. The water is pretty clear, and with water levels low there hasn’t been anything to push fish to the banks.

About: - Lake Wylie, a 12,455-acre impoundment on the Catawba River in North and South Carolina. Lake Wylie is an excellent bream lake and is loaded with these fish. While the average size may not be as large as on some lakes that we'll discuss, the sheer numbers of good-sized fish present more than compensate.
