Linesides: Good. For stripers, big baits fished on planer boards have been producing some good-sized stripers in good numbers. I’m using big gizzards or big trout, and I’m back in the creeks and in the rivers. Little River, up to Clear Creek, has been producing best for me. The key to fishing this part of the lake right now is finding clear water. If the water is muddy don’t waste your time putting out bait. Go find the mud line and start fishing there.
The Hybrid fishing is still good but seems to be best mid-lake. Fishing with medium-sized shiners and thread-fin shad on down-lines between 20-45 feet deep is working best for them. Look for these fish over the river channel between Galt’s Ferry and Clear Creek.
There is a limited topwater bite on Allatoona right now – but it only lasts about 20 minutes at sunrise. Trolling has been VERY SLOW for the past few days. Look for it to pick back up as the water clears.
