Lake Burton Fishing Report

Water Temp: 47deg
Clarity: Clear
Water Level: down 7ft

The Bass bite has been great the last few days! We have caught some big Spotted Bass and Large Mouths on ledges close to the main lake Channels. These fish are aggressive and hit with determination! We have been casting in and around deep water docks close to outcroppings. A sinking swim bait has been the most productive. This pattern should last a few more weeks as we transition into a deeper water spoon bite.

The Brown Trout bite has been decent the last few weeks. Most of the trout we have caught have been on trolling small spoons (Little Cleo’s) and casting to surfacing fish. We have caught a few bigger Browns on Blue Back Herring free lined over the main lake channel. This pattern should continue for the next several weeks.

The Walleye bite has begun after a long awaited warm fall. We have been catching most of our fish on a 20 to 25 ft bottom. We have been trolling crawler harnesses (night crawlers) at about 1.5 mph in and around brush piles. These fish are clinging close to structure and will not travel very far from these areas. Rocky Banks and points have been another good area to Target the North Georgia Walleye. Try working an area several times before giving up. These fish sometimes take some coercion and don’t always bite on the first pass. The Walleye bite should continue to get better over the next few weeks.
Good Luck!
