Linesides: Fair to Good, depending what day you’re there. Fishing has changed a little since last week. The fish have moved out over the river channel and are schooling in depths between 20 – 40 feet deep.  And, trolling seems to be your best bet right now.  Live bait will also catch you a few fish.

Down line your bait over the river channel is between 20 – 40 feet deep.  Make sure you use long leaders, 6-8 feet is what I’m using on Allatoona right now.

White bass fishing is still the best bite on the lake.  These fish are schooling on top from sun up to sun down… Just ride until you find them. Mid-lake has been the best. A jr spook is working best for these little line-side. Hopefully the weather will continue to cool in the upcoming days. And with cooler weather, we look for the fishing to pick back up.

Trolling is by far the best bite right now. Troll your Mack Farr u-rigs right in the middle of the river channel. We are using a four arm loaded with nine all white jigs, 120 feet back at 2.4 miles per hour.
