  • Fall Bass Fishing on Lake Keowee

    Fall bass fishing is finally here on Lake Keowee. The water temperatures are in the low 70s, and the bass are scattered from the banks to 20 feet of water.
    Fishing is good anytime, but the morning bite is a little better. Start out throwing a white fluke around banks, points, and shoals. Work the fluke fast for a reaction strike.
    As the sun gets up, move to the docks and flip a 3/8 ounce green pumpkin jig with a green Super Chunk Jr. trailer in two-five feet of water.
    Also cast a floating worm or a shallow running crankbait between the docks to snag the fish that are hanging off the banks.
    The spotted bass are still scattered off the points, but they are not grouping up yet. If you can find them, they are biting a drop shot rig with a green pumpkin or morning dawn worm.
    Fall fishing is a great time to get out on Lake Keowee, and you will pretty much have the lake to yourself.
