Fly Fishing – Fly fishing on Lake Oconee is definitely all about timing. Early or late in the day is always the best bite. There are some specific times in Spring that offer good opportunities. First the shad spawn, this is when the baitfish will move shallow at first light. Last year this started around the second week in April.
The second and most exciting time to fly fish here is what we guides call “the pump back bite”. Last year this started in mid-May and ran through mid-June. It is a first light bite near the dam. When Georgia Power pumps water up from Lake Sinclair the shad get knocked off the wall of the dam and up to the surface and this trigger a massive topwater bite for hybrids and stripers.
If you book a fly fishing only trip I will call before your trip to advise you of current conditions. Combo trips using both fly rods and light spinning tackle give us a good plan B if fly fishing is slow.
Hybrids and Stripers – It is on now for spinning tackle! Finally, the Monsoons have gone away, and the water has cleared up. Long lining bass minnows has worked great! As we move toward the shad spawn, I’ll be breaking out the cast net and loading the tank with fresh shad. The jigging spoon bite will get active soon too. It’s a great way to hook up with a fat hybrid or striper.
Crappie – The crappie bite is still going strong as we move into April. The bigger fish are moving in shallow in the afternoon. Long line trolling has been very productive in water 4 feet deep or less. It’s a great trip for kids and you go home with some fine table fare.
