OVERALL BITE: POOR Lake Wylie has been clear this week with water temps falling early in the week from the extreme cold weather last weekend. The rivers were 42-43 degrees earlier this week and climbed to 45-46 with the more seasonable weather later in the week. The South Fork was warmer this week due to power production and ranged from 54-56 degrees. Catfish, bream, crappie, and white perch have been hard to catch this week. Perhaps this is due to the rapid changes in water temperature and the fluctuations in weather. Simply put; the fish are not where they were two weeks ago nor are they biting like they were. The good news is that the fish still need to eat. Keep an eye out for warming trends since this could spark a good bite for 3-4 days. Dress warm and plan to anchor for catfish and fish deeper water. Dont plan on the rods going off every five minutes. Down size the bait and hooks and be patient.
