July Fishing Advice on Lake Wedowee

Lake Wedowee Fishing Advice
by Brian Morris

July fishing on Wedowee this year will be the best we have seen in a long time, due to cooler temperatures, excessive rain fall and water current. For bass fishing, be on the lake earlier, like 5:00 A.M. Fish the points on main river channels. Start shallow and work your way out, using top water baits, like a shad color spook or a popping bait. If no takers, swap to a 3 to 5 ft diving crank bait (also in some type of shad color). The bass should be really active and wanting a quick early meal. Use these tactics early and late in the afternoon when the sun goes down.. After 9:00 A.M, slow it down with a C-rig or Texas rig using something supporting a green pumpkin worm or creature bait. Fish long points or shallow flats close to deep water.

Crappie fishing has been great all year. Keep a good eye on your electronics. Look for deep pockets, mouths of creeks, generally no further than the first two docks left or right side (just a little secret). The crappie are hanging out in 6 to 18 ft of water/ according to the conditions of the day. Use a Red head 1/16 oz or 1/32 oz jig red head with white body( something with feathers on it). In sunny conditions always look for docks and timber and the shady spots for bass and crappie. 

Hope this information will help you to have a great day of putting fish in the boat. God Bless and good fishing!
