Schooling Stripers are Everywhere on Lake Hartwell

Report Date: October 21, 2010

Water Level- 5 Ft. low
Temp.- 75 degrees

�Schooling fish everywhere� There are fish feeding in the surface almost every day. Most are hybrids 3-6 pounds. The fish can come to the surface at any time of the day. Some days they feed better in the middle of the day. This may be because they have been generating water through the dam, starting at 1:00 pm on most week days. The bad news is that the fish have left their deep water summer pattern. It can be hard to find fish unless they school on the surface. They are moving around fast, feeding on small shad and blueback herring. The mid to lower lake is the best area to look for surface activity. Calm and cloudy days are the best days. The water will continue to turn over through November. By the end of November, the turnover will be complete and fish will then follow the bait up the lake and in the creeks.
