    OVERALL BITE: SLOW
    Water conditions on Lake Wylie have remained clear all week. No rain has meant no inflow of muddy water. The lake remains at or near its target elevation. Moving water has been minimal. Water temps on the main lake and rivers have ranged from 45-47 degrees, with the South Fork River is around 10 degrees warmer when water is being discharged.

    The bite continues to be slow this week. Timing your fishing with moving water greatly increases you chances for picking up fish. Most fish and bait remain deep along the old river channel, but on warmer days you can find fish moving up onto the deeper flats. Catches this week were in the 8-10 fish per day range.

    The long range weather forecast calls for highs in the 60’s with lows in the 40’s next week, so a good bite might be right around the corner. For now, a few colder nights should keep the bait and fish near and in deeper water.

    Good report Dieter.

    Everyone I've talked too says the same thing.
    Slow bite.

    Thanks for the report Dieter, I enjoy reading them. Go out there and stir that water up a bit and get the bite warmed up. :wink::smile2:
