Any of you guys ever fish the Clarks Hill area ???????? Especially the area around Mistletoe Park and Elijah Clark. These look like they would hold some huge flat heads and blues. I seen some guys pull a couple of big flatheads out from under a boatramp at Elijah Clark last summer.

I fished it a couple times last year up the Little River branch (GA side). We caught one flathead, but I have no doubt that there are some monster flatheads in that section. I did not like the "main" river portion of the lake though. The little river branch had a ton of brush and wood and was more what I was looking for. I have read that folks do well in this area as well. Let us know how you do if you go!

I fished Clarkhill last summer and caught a 16 and 20 lb in an hours time. Some really good fishing up there around the Mistletoe State Park area going west. Will be back up there around May sometime. We stay a week at the time and have real good luck. Fish Cats with brim and shad that we catch for bait.

I grew up in Augusta and have fished that lake more times than I can count. Everytime I am home for a visit I pack up and go to the lake. There are allot of Flatheads in the lake, you just have to find the areas where they are at. Like it was stated in previous posts, the area around the Little River bridge is an excellent place for Flatties as is the area around the dam on the lake side. These two areas are probably the best choice because of all the rip rap they have around them. The western side of the lake form the Little river towards Elijah Clarke State park is a very good area for fishing. There is also some really good Blue fishing below the dam on the Savannah River. There is allot of good fishing spots in Augusta. The Lock and Dam by the airport is a great place to catch cats. I have seen some really nice size cats come out of there. There is a ton of structure along that stretch of the river. If you are in the Little River area stop by the Pair of Jacks store and ask for advice. They are great people and if you happen to make it to the Lock and Dam stop by the Bait and Tackle store at the entrance and they will give you good information as well.

Generally at night fish about 4 -6 somtimes 8 ft. deep. We are going to try and find some stucture areas that I was told was there and get a gps on it.... we plan on doing some scouting for some deep holes up towards Raysville. Generally fish the Ga. Side but may move on up to the SC side and see how it does....

Good luck and hope to meet ya up there.
