Lines-side fishing is Good!!
The lake is about eight feet above full pool and there is debris floating everywhere. So if you’re heading out this weekend be careful.
To my surprise the water has very good color from Kellogg’s all the way to the spillway at Lake Acworth. The bite this week is also surprising. The overall bite is really good. Dodging all the debris can be challenging but rewarding if you’re willing to put in the time. The rivers are blown out and probably will be until sometime next week.
The best bite going right now is probably the bank bite at the spillway. Bank anglers are having a field day right now. I talked to the DNR on 5/7 and they said they have been seeing some really good catches coming from the banks at the spillway. I rode over there on 5/8 and watched about a dozen Hybrids being caught on both live bait and artificial.
There is also a decent bite in the mouth of all the major creeks right now. Main lake points and humps are also holding some decent schools of Hybrids. The bite is a mixture of down lines, planer boards and free lines, with most of the fish coming off the down lines after 8 AM.
Trolling has been decent, but should get really good once the water temperature hits 70 degrees.
Overall the lake is flowing out of its banks and there is floating debris everywhere. But spring is an awesome time to be on the water and the lake will drop back down to normal levels soon.
Grab the kids, give us a call and let’s go fishing.
