Latest Allatoona Fishing Report
Allatoona June 2015 Fishing Report
Allatoona: Level: 0.3 feet above full pool. Temp: 80 degrees. Clarity: Light to heavy stain.

Bass: Tournament pro and radio host Matt Driver reports, “The month of June is still a great time to be on the water. Bass are continuing to migrate to deeper water, but they are still both shallow and deep right now. The warmer it gets, the fish will be settling deep. The topwater bite is good in the morning and just before dark. The most consistent bite is the 3/16-oz. shaky head...

Latest Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report
Bartletts Ferry June 2015 Fishing Report
Bartletts Ferry: Level: 0.6 feet below full pool. Temp: 80-82 degrees. Clarity: Light stain.

Bass: “Fishing has been decent,” said tournament director Dennis Hudson. “You can catch some good bass at daylight fishing a topwater lure over the bream beds while the bream are spawning. The water temperature is rising quickly, and then it is going to be pretty much be a grassbed bite early and late. There’s a lot of ways to catch them. ChatterBaits, Texas rigs...

Latest Blackshear Fishing Report
Blackshear June 2015 Fishing Report
Blackshear: Level: Full pool. Temp: 84 degrees. Clarity: Main lake clear, river lightly stained.

Crappie: Rusty Parker reports, “The crappie bite has slowed a good bit, but the bream have began bedding, and the bluegills seem to be very large for Lake Blackshear. I have been lucky enough to find five different bluegill beds, and they have been huge. The upper end of the lake is stained a lot, so you should start looking for the bream beds from Hwy 280 bridge and to the south...

Latest Blue Ridge Fishing Report
Blue Ridge June 2015 Fishing Report
Blue Ridge: Level: Full pool. Temp: 78 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Guide Eric Crowley reports, “What a great month May was. With spawning bait and feeding fish everywhere, it’s the kinda thing that will spoil you. We had been targeting fish on the rip-rap scattered around the lake that was holding bluebacks, but that’s all over now. Looks like the bait has spread out, and the fish are following them. The smallmouth—what’s left of them—will...

Latest Burton Fishing Report
Burton June 2015 Fishing Report
Burton: Level: Full pool. Temp: 73-76 degrees. Clarity: Full.

Bass: Guide Wes Carlton reports, “The largemouth bass have almost completed their spawn and should return to a normal late spring pattern in a few weeks. The spotted bass are getting ready to spawn. Look for these spots in 10 to 12 feet of water. Casting a junebug fineness worm up toward the bank has been the ticket the last few days. These spotted bass should go on the bed any day now. After the spawn, most of...

Latest Carters Fishing Report
Carters June 2015 Fishing Report
Carters: Level: 0.5 feet above full pool. Temp: 76-79 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Spotted Bass: Good. Guide Louie Bartenfield reports, “Our spotted bass are finishing up the spawn, and the majority of fish are now post-spawners and making their way to deeper breaklines and offshore summertime areas. June is a fantastic month to fish Spotsticker Jigheads and drop shots on deep breaklines from 18 to 30 feet. The threadfin shad are also still spawning and will continue to do so...

Latest Clarks Hill Fishing Report
Clarks Hill June 2015 Fishing Report
Clarks Hill: Level: 0.4 feet below full pool. Temp: 80-82 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Linesides: Guide William Sasser reports, “The hybrids and stripers are moving away from the shallows where they were chasing the spawning herring. The best bite is coming early in the mornings from around sunrise until about 8 a.m. and then again around sunset. As the hybrids and stripers move back into deeper water, they will be grouped up 35 to 45 feet deep off of the sides of humps, shoals...

Latest Eufaula Fishing Report
Eufaula June 2015 Fishing Report
Eufaula: Level: 2.2 feet below 190 full pool. Temp: 82-85 degrees. Clarity: Lightly stained.

Bass: Good. Tournament angler Les Bratcher reports, “Due to the changing water levels here at Eufaula, most anglers are catching both shallow and deep fish. The shad spawn has been taking place, and fishermen are catching bass early around this and moving to deeper structure as the day rolls on. Most anglers are catching fish early on frogs, buzzbaits and swim jigs. Deeper fish are...

Latest Hartwell Fishing Report
Hartwell June 2015 Fishing Report
Hartwell: Level: 0.2 feet above full pool. Temp: 78-81 degrees. Clarity: Clear and some stain in the creeks.

Bass: Tournament angler Kerry Partain reports, “The bass fishing has been good the past couple weeks with the blueback herring spawn keeping the bass shallow and feeding up before moving out for the summer. Early in the mornings, throw a Zoom Super Fluke and topwater plugs for schooling bass on main-lake points and humps. Once the topwater bite slows down, start...

Latest Lanier Fishing Report
Lanier June 2015 Fishing Report
Lanier: Level: 0.4 feet below full pool. Temp: 78-81 degrees. Clarity: The north end is lightly stained from War Hill Park north and from Laurel Park north. The south end is very clear.

Bass: Very Good. Guide and tournament pro Ryan Coleman reports, “We still have a little pollen falling on the water but thankfully, that is about over. Water temps are in the upper 70s and the spotted bass are full of rage. We have had a great early May and look for it to continue through...

Latest Oconee Fishing Report
Oconee June 2015 Fishing Report
Oconee: Level: Full pool. Temp: 82-84 degrees. Clarity: Clear down the lake; light stain up the lake.

Bass: Tournament angler Aaron Batson reports, “Fish have moved deeper. When current is moving, crank deep summer locations with a Normans DD22 or Strike King 6XD crankbait in blue/chartreuse colors. Look for bass to hold in 15 to 22 feet of water on the downstream current side of structure. Also try a 3/4-oz. Net Boy Baits football jig in black and blue in the same areas....

Latest Russell Fishing Report
Russell June 2015 Fishing Report
Russell: Level: 1.1 feet below full pool. Temp: 80 degrees. Clarity: Clear on the main lake and stained in the creeks.

Bass: Tournament angler Kerry Partain reports, “The bass fishing on Russell has been tougher than normal the last two weeks with largemouth almost nonexistent. You can catch a few fish early on the main-lake points and shoals, and then it’s a grind to catch a few spotted bass. The spotted bass are being caught mostly on a drop shot with a small worm...

Latest Saltwater Fishing Report
Saltwater June 2015 Fishing Report
Saltwater: Inshore: Capt. David Newlin reports, “Summer is here in full swing. Water temperature was 80 degrees in Ossabaw Sound this morning. Big schools of pogies (menhaden) have been all over the surface the last few days. All the migrating fish will follow the schools of pogies. The trout bite is going good. The biggest problem has been finding some clear water. Find clear water, and you can find trout. All of my fish in recent days have been caught on live shrimp under corks and on...

Latest Seminole Fishing Report
Seminole June 2015 Fishing Report
Seminole: Level: 0.6 feet above full pool. Temp. Mid 80s. Clarity: The Chattahoochee is stained, the Flint is slightly stained, and Spring Creek is clear.

Bass: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “At this time fishing is a little slow for bass. This will improve with water clarity and mayfly hatches. Topwater for bass should take off soon. Try a Devil’s Horse in Tennessee shad or silver shiner, as well as Speed Worms fished with 1/32- or 1/8-oz. weights in watermelon with red...

Latest Sinclair Fishing Report
Sinclair June 2015 Fishing Report
Sinclair: Level: 0.6 feet below full pool. Temp: 83-84 degrees. Clarity: Clear to lightly stained.

Bass: Tournament angler Aaron Batson reports, “Bass have moved deeper. Look for them to stack up on main-lake structure in 16 to 24 feet of water. Ditches down the center of coves can be productive, too. Slow-moving baits like a Carolina-rigged Zoom Finesse worm or a Trixster Custom Baits Big Willy worm on a heavy 3/8-oz. Net Boy Baits shaky head will work well. Also, try a...

Latest Weiss Fishing Report
Weiss June 2015 Fishing Report
Weiss: Level: Full pool. Temp: 79-83 degrees. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Good. Capt. Mike Carter reports, “The fishing on Weiss has really turned on, and this lake can be a blast when you get big largemouths and spotted bass combined for a great day of just plain ol’ fun. The main pattern has been covering a lot of water and fishing some of the shallow grass banks that are close to some deep water with Snag Proof Frogs. This pattern is extremely exciting and can produce...

Latest West Point Fishing Report
West Point June 2015 Fishing Report
West Point: Level: 1.1 feet below full pool. Temp: 79-83 degrees. Clarity: Mostly clear down the lake; the river is lightly stained to around the 219 bridge.

Bass: Good. Guide Keith Hudson reports, “Shallow-water baits such as unweighted Trick Worms, flukes, Senkos and frogs are working right now. Postspawn females are being caught in shallow water as they guard their fry. Zoom lizards on a Carolina rig will also work well when the largemouth are on guard. Another good ...
