The Lake Allatoona Fishing Report from Robert Eidson is brought to you by First Bite Guide Service.
Line-side fishing is fair at best.
The fish are scattered up and down in the water column out over the river channel. They are starting to bust topwater along with the white bass but — unlike the white bass which will stay up for 5-10 minutes at a time — hybrids and stripers are only staying up for seconds.
Down-lining live bait is working fair off main lake points down south. Carry a lot of bait with you and change it frequently.
Trolling is best for numbers. Most of the fish we caught this week came on Mack Farr umbrella rigs. Pull these rigs at 3.4 MPH 125 feet behind the boat. Have an umbrella rig retriever on board.
White bass fishing is still the best bite on the lake. They’re schooling on top from sunup to sundown. Just ride until you find them. Mid-lake has been the best. A Zara Spook Jr, Popping corks and Rooster Tails are best.
Give us a call and we’ll catch you some fish on Lake Allatoona.
