Overall Bite: FAIR Things are getting better and the fish seem to be past the spawn and moving back to normal patterns. Males and females are being caught regularly now all over the lake. Water temps on Lake Wylie have crept up a bit this week with the hotter weather. The main lake is 88-90 degrees and the South Fork River remains around 98. Some cooler water can be found way up both river arms, but even there 84-85 is about as cool as it gets. Some heavy showers left parts of the river arms muddy and stained from mid week through Saturday, but the areas were isolated and had little widspread impact on fishing. Water releases have been occuring about every 4-6 hours. Drifting has been effective later in the day with most catches coming on flats adjacent to deeper water. The early bite has been fairly slow, but a few fish can be caught anchored. Night fishing is ok, but not spectacular yet. The cats seem to favor bream, white perch and threadfin shad over gizzard shad right now.
