Lake Allatoona Fishing Report August 2017

Allatoona: Level: 0.3 feet below full pool. Temp: 84-85 degrees. Clarity: Visibility 6 feet.

Linesides: Guide Robert Eidson reports, “Allatoona lineside fishing is great! The full moon phase has passed, and the bite is back on. The downline bite is nothing short of incredible. The south end of the lake is the place to be right now. Iron Hill, The Pass or any point within eyesight of the dam is holding fish. These fish are scattered in the water column anywhere from 13 to 40 feet deep. Shad, shiners and bream are all working, but it’s hard to catch shad right now. If cast-netting isn’t your thing, Shawn and Chris at Striper Soup have plenty of bait in stock. If you’re using bream, make sure you catch them with hook and line. Be sure to carry plenty of bait, and change it often. Frisky bait is the key to putting more fish in the boat.”
