Striper Seasons

Unseasonably Warm Weather Has Kept the Stripers Active

Report Date: February 14, 2012

Striper Fishing Report as of 1-15-12 for Lake Hartwell
Water temp 51˚
Water level 9ft.

With water temperature still above 50˚ the fish are still active. Stripers, hybrids, large mouth and spots are schooling good on cloudy days. On sunny days they are suspended in the river channels and over trees up the major rivers.

The migration into the major creeks should start soon with the warm weather. They will eat small flukes and small clouser flies cast into the schools of fish. The trollers are catching lots of fish pulling umbrella rigs with the small bucktails and swimbaits. If we don’t get much cold weather this pattern should continue. The period before a front is the best time to be looking. Look for seagulls in the area.
