  • Winds of Change on Lake Keowee

    The winds of change blew in on Lake Keowee with Hurricane Isaac, and with the change the bass started their fall patterns.

    The bass had been in deep water and moving up on the points, and now they are cruising around rock structures and forging on bream. Also they have started moving back into the rivers in the coves and pockets looking for bait.

    Throw a jerkbait or a shallow running crankbait in bluegill or chrome /black colors against the rocks or rip rap for a reaction strike. Also be prepared for a hit in three to five feet of water on the retrieve.

    Back in the rivers, the bass are also holding in shallow water and hitting on jig heads and shaky- head jigs with u-tail or trick worm trailers. On Lake Keowee it doesn’t matter what color you throw as long as it is green.

    The water temperature is in the mid- to low 80s and it is dropping. With the drop in the water temp and the coming of fall, the fishing will only get better on Lake Keowee.
