  • Lake Keowee Bass Fishing Report

    The tournament anglers on Lake Keowee are saying that the bass are still scattered and hard to find because it has not gotten cold enough yet.

    Those that are catching fish are staying tight-lipped about how and where these fish are being caught, but the consensus is that you have to locate the bait first to find the fish.

    Many anglers are finding the bait in the mouth of the creek channels and are fishing a drop shot rig in 35 to 75 feet of water. Tiny flukes, finesse, cut tail, and Robo worms in cinnamon, morning dawn, and watermelon/red are working best.

    Several good largemouth bass have been caught in less than two feet of water later in the afternoon. Anglers are throwing jigs and shaky heads on the sunny side of boat docks or along rock structures after the water warms up.

    The pattern seems to be an early morning or late afternoon bite and always keep a jerkbait ready for schooling fish that are coming up fast.

    As the water temperature drops, the spotted bass will start to “bunch up,” and the bass fishing should improve.
