Conditions : Lake Wylie: •Largemouth Bass: Slow. FLW Professional and Guide Matt Arey reports that right now the bite remains poor on Lake Wylie. There is no clear reason why the fishing is so tough, and perhaps it is due to the fact that lakes tend to go in cycles. This whole year has been difficult on Lake Wylie. For now anglers are advised to follow the traditional fall pattern of looking for bass following shad schools into the backs of creeks. Small square-billed crankbaits and ¼ ounce Rattle Traps are both good options at this time of year, but fish will also take topwater lures such as Spooks, buzzbaits and Pop-Rs all day long once they move up shallow. Right now fish can be found at the backs of all the major creeks, including Big and Little Allison, 7 Oaks, etc. There has also been some decent schooling activity around flatter pockets going into creeks, although this action has been very hit or miss. Matt reminds anglers that there is a misconception that all bait will move into the creeks in the fall, but in reality just like there are resident creek fish that never leave the creeks there are also fish that stay on the main lake year round (including during the spawn). These fish will move shallower in the fall just like fish that move into the creeks, but they will move onto main lake flats. The key is looking for a ditch, channel or some other depth gradient that give the fish a way to move onto the flat – fish do not just swim around randomly but instead use highways to funnel into and out of places.

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.
