Clark's hill - Lake Thurmond striped bass and hybrids are hungry

Clarks Hill - Freshwater Fishing Report

Feb 2018. Surface Water temps are between 46 and 48 degrees in the am. Winter has set in and for a lot of species, the metabolism has slowed down a bit. The one group that continues to feed voraciously are the Hybrid striped bass. We continue to catch these fish on down rods with live herring or medium minnows. We are finding more fish relating to the river channels or large creek channels rather than the shallow, flats or points further towards the backs of creeks. Look in 45ft to 64 ft along channel bends. There most likely will be trees present but don't let that deter you efforts. Take the time to use electronics to find a gap in the trees that allow you to fish the entire water column without constantly hanging up. One day they prefer to run the bottom and will not chase bait. The next day, they will come up from the bottom and feed best around 30-40 ft. Remember to keep changing baits and experiment within and sizes to find what they want that day. Tight lines.
