12/09/09 Full Pool Lake Level - 635.00 Current Lake Level - 630.40 Surface Temperature - Upper 50's Water Clarity - Light stain on the main lake. Stained up the creeks. Muddy up the Chattahoochee River. Generation Schedule Today - Around the clock until further notice (subject to change without notice). LARGEMOUTH BASS / SPOTTED BASS - Fair - The Bass are moving out deeper with the colder water temps. Look for Largemouth and Spotted Bass to be suspending in the treesalong the river and major creek channels. Bass are also holding in the brush piles on the old roadbeds. Most of the old roadbeds have brush on or around them. The best way to catch Bass for the rest of the winter is probably going to be vertically jigging spoons. When they get hungry, they will come out of the trees and move up on adjacent flats to feed. Locate the Shad on your graph and you should also find a variety of game fish. STRIPED BASS / HYBRID BASS - Good - Striped, Hybrid and White Bass are now biting good down on the main lake on live Shad. Good areas to try are the railroad hump, the flats around the mouths of Wehadkee Creek and Indian Creek and the humps in the mouth of Maple Creek. The DNR has been stocking Striped Bass for the last four years. The first Striped Bass that were stocked are getting up to around 15+ pounds. Please release these small Striped Bass and West Point Lake will offer some great fishing for big Striped Bass in the very near future. Make your plans now for the spring Striper run! CRAPPIE - Fair - Crappie are also moving out deeper and suspending in the trees along the river and major creek channels. Crappie are also holding in the deep brush piles on the old roadbeds. Crappie fishing will likely remain only fair until the trolling season starts to get going in February. I can't wait! CATFISH - Good - Blue and Channel Catfish are biting good all over the lake. The best bait is cut Shad. Fishing for Flathead Catfish has slowed down due to the colder water temps. Unlike Blue and Channel Catfish, Flathead Catfish do not like cold water and will remain inactive during the colder months. The Flathead fishing will start picking up when the water starts to warm in the spring, usually about the time the Striper and Hybrid run up the Chattahoochee River gets going good. I am now offering fishing trips exclusively for Fathead Catfish and also combo Striper/Flathead trips. Book your Flathead trip today.
