Overall Bite: FAIR Water temps on Lake Wylie range from 49 degrees in the river to 53 degrees on the main lake. The main lake has returned to the traditional Wylie green, with some stained water still remaining in the South Fork. The bite on Lake Wylie is slower than last week. Fish can still be caught by the persistent angler, but the big catches are not happening right now. A great bite does not last forever, and it appears this one is coming to an end. While a big fish can be caught at any time, things appear to be turning towards a more normal December pattern. Bait choice is not critical at this time. Basically any cut bait will produce fish, including shad, perch, and herring. Catches of 10-12 fish can be expected.
