Linesides: Excellent. My clients this past week have catching up to 50 fish a trip, It’s easy fishing right now. “It’s been incredible, and it’s really ABC fishing. Pick a main-lake point, start in about 20 feet of water, and start working out with your downlines. The linesides are setting up 18 to 24 feet deep, but they might be suspended over a deeper bottom. “Today we didn’t find them until we hit the 60-foot bottom, but the fish were 24 feet down.
Trolling The umbrella rigs is producing along with the downlines, but bites on topwater and flatlines are nonexistent. “The south end of the lake is the key. If you’re fishing within sight of the dam, you’re in a good area. Fish from Clear Creek to the south, and into Allatoona Creek to about the railroad trestle at the southern end of Allatoona Landing,. “There’s nothing up north, even the white-bass bite has died. One other thing worth mentioning is last year’s stocking of 100,000 stripers — about three times more than the lake normally gets. I think every one of them lived. Never have I seen so many peanut stripers, 1-pounders, in my life. And the hybrids that we are catching are big and strong.”
