Lake Hartwell fishing forecast for December 2021
Report Date: November 14, 2021
Water level: Full Pool
Blue back herring work, but I like to fish a small buck tail jig with a small fluke. I also like a small scrounger jig head with a small zoom fluke in colors white ice, green albino or Arkansas shad.
Largemouth and spotted bass are also active and are shallow. They move back into the creeks feeding up in preparation for winter. All game fish feed good till the water temp. gets below 48 degrees. This usually happens in early January. Then their metabolism slows down. The exception is the crappie. They will eat all winter.
