Lake Hartwell Report

Its on!! Temps have dropped into the 60's and the bigger fish have come up to join in the action. They are beginning to move from the river to the creeks and staying up much longer now. Despite windy conditions today we caught 7 fish on the fly today from 4-7 lbs. Some schools were on bluebacks and others on shad. The key is matching the bait size. It will only get better this week as the night temps drop. Forgot the camera today, sorry no pics. Look for birds and surface activity. If they go down, stay there. They will come back up in a few minutes. Good luck and good fishing.
