Crappie: Variable. Veteran tournament angler Will Hinson reports that crappie fishing is unpredictable, with fish biting very well some days and slowly on other days. The best pattern generally depends on the time of day, and early in the morning fish seem to make their way into the middle to backs of creeks following shad. Will advises looking for schooling shad and then throwing lines there, with long-line trolling the best way to target fish. Creeks halfway up all the way to the top of the lake, including Dutchman, Taylor and Wateree Creek, have been most productive. Later in the day fish seem to be pulling out to brush next to the river ledge, and they are being caught near the bottom in 16-18 feet of water.

Crappie: Fair. Veteran tournament angler Will Hinson reports that crappie can be caught around deep brush piles in 18-25 feet of water. They are holding nearly flat to the bottom around the brush, but they are not necessarily right in the brush. Working jigs about 6-10 inches off the bottom has been the key. This method is not producing a lot of fish right now, but good quality fish over a pound are coming with this pattern. Fish can be caught with this pattern all over the lake, but the main lake is much more productive than the creeks. As temperatures start to change crappie will start to make their way towards shallow brush in the next couple of weeks. Smaller fish are already starting to make this move. Largemouth Bass: Fair. FLW Angler Dearal Rodgers reports that there are still a lot of fish out deep on the ledges right now, and they can be caught on Carolina rigs and jigs. However, shad have started to make a move into the creeks – a migration which will only accelerate. Medium-running crankbaits are the best way to target the creek fish.
