Default Lake Thurmond report

Lake Thurmond:
  • Striped and Hybrid Bass: Good. The Clark’s Hill Herring Hut reports that a lot of fish are making their way down the rivers – the Georgia Little River, Key Creek, and Parksville are good areas to look. Another group of fish has already arrived at the dam and a few people are catching fish on cut bait off the banks down. The best pattern for hybrids is fishing 25 feet down over 50-60 feet of water.
  • Perch: Good. Guide Wendell Wilson reports that below the Lake Russell Dam he is catching good numbers of white and yellow perch with minnows on the bottom in 30 feet. Crappie: Fair. Guide Rod Wall reports that both arms of the lake are muddy, and the baitfish have started to make their way into the creeks. The best bite in recent tournaments has come long-line trolling with plain jigs – the bite has been short and so they are making the bait as short as possible.
  • Black bass: Slow. The Herring Hut reports that the bass bite continues to be very slow. The better fish seem to be coming in 30-40 feet of water on Buckeye Lures Mop Jigs, but a few fish will come shallower in the evening.
  • Bream and perch: Slow. The Herring Hut reports that once the current slows fish in ditches 14-17 feet deep that run parallel to the main channel where there are good numbers of yellow perch (use minnows) and bream (use worms) as well as some crappie.
