BLUESTONE – During winter, anglers should fish slowly and methodically.  Fish will still feed but have a slower metabolism as the water cools.  A few bass are being caught off rocky points using live minnows.  Anglers should look for points that have some cover such as stumps, logs, or ledges.  Some hybrid striped bass and striped bass may be caught using large chubs.  Anglers should try spots such as at the mouth of the Bluestone Arm or near the dam.  With any warm, stable weather, fish may become more active.  A few anglers are catching some smallmouth bass in the tailwaters.  Successful anglers are using one-eighth ounce white doll flies and gitzits.  Anglers should be careful wading this time of year due to the cold water and slippery conditions.  Wear your personal flotation devices.

Fishing on the lake has been good. Bass anglers should try their luck around deeper structure such as rocky points or downed trees using small crankbaits, or spinnerbaits. Although, plastics and live bait are probably the top producing baits. With the cooler nights we are now experiencing, anglers should see the bites really beginning to pick up as the water temperature falls. Channel and flathead catfish are still producing some on the lake. Anglers wanting to catch the whiskered ones should try drifting with live bait such as soft shell crayfish, hellgrammites, or nightcrawlers. Chicken livers are also good. When you catch one, simply motor back up and drift through the hole again or anchor. Flatheads prefer live bait such as large chubs or a live sunfish. Carp, hybrid stripers, and smallmouth bass are hitting in the tailwaters with best baits being corn, chartruese jigs, and plastic jigs, respectively.
