This Lake Allatoona fishing guides report is bought to you by Robert Eidson of First Bite Guide Service. www.firstbiteguideservice.com 770 827-6282.
Line side fishing is poor. Nothing has change since last week. but The lake is really starting to clear on the north-end from the S-Turns all the way to Knots Bridge. And then again south from Iron Hill to the dam. The main lake is still stain but is know where as bad as it was last week.
The shad kill seems to be all most over on the main lake. But there is still dying shad in the back of most south-end creeks. and fishing should get back to normal as soon as. the lake level stabilizes and clears. The key to catching fish when the bite turns back on is to find clear water.
The backs of the creeks like Kellogg’s Creek, Clear Creek, Stamp Creek, Clark Creek and Iron Hill will clear first and will be your best bet. Small baits trout, shiners and shad fished on planner boards and free lines will be your best bet.
We are still getting reports of a few schools of Hybrids and Stripers busting top water right before dark at Bartow Carver beach. Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come. Trolling is still poor but should pick back up as the water clears. This was the worst Feb I can remember in my 45 years of fishing Lake Allatoona. Hopefully March 2010 will be remember as the best I have seen in 45 years.
