Line-side fishing right now is: Fair.
The cold front that we had earlier this week slowed the bite down. Look for the bite to rebound quickly as the water warms back up.
The river bite is on hold right now. The river is flowing out of its banks and mudding. The river bite will pick back up as the water starts to clear. Right now your best chance to load the boat is mid-lake. The fish are schooling up from Kelloggs Creek to Stamp Creek.
There is a decent top water bite right at sunup. Ride the lake until you see busting fish. These fish will eat all most anything: Flukes, Redfins, Sammies, Bucktails and spooks.
There are fish from the mouth of the Etowah River and as far south as Allatoona Creek. All of your major creeks have fish in them right now.
If you find the baitfish, you’ll find stripers and hybrids nearby. Flat-lines in the morning and afternoon and down-lines mid-day is the way to go.
Trolling is working really well right now. The Mack Farr 3-arm umbrella rig has been producing best for me right now. Color doesn’t seem to matter, but speed is a factor. The best speed for me this week has been between 3.3 – 3.5 miles per hour.
Remember, April is one of the best months for line-side fishing. We still have a few days open this month and we’re offering family trips starting at $250.00.
