  • Lake Keowee Fishing Report

    For the first of spring it is still cold out there, but for those brave enough to take on the blowing wind, driving rain, and freezing temps, the fishing is great on Lake Keowee.

    The largemouth bass are back in the pockets, and fishermen are sight fishing for them on the beds. Generally, the big females are in the very back on the coves sitting in shallow water from one –three feet deep with a couple of bucks guarding the bed.

    The bass anglers that are catching these bedding fish are mostly throwing 3/8 ounce jigs in black/blue with black/blue trailers or green pumpkins jigs with green pumpkin trailers.

    The crappie fishermen are also catching fish over shallow water brush piles and along the banks as the crappie are also starting to spawn. Small to medium minnows fished with a float from one to three feet deep or small 1/8 or 1/16 ounces marabou or mylar jigs in white or red/white are good.

    So no matter if you are bass or crappie fishing on Lake Keowee, the fishing is great, but you have to get out there and navigate the elements to catch them.
