Lake Wylie Fishing Report

Lake Wylie is at 97% of full pool.

Largemouth Bass: Fair to good.  FLW Professional and Guide Matt Arey (704-484-7715) reports that there are two main patterns for catching bass on Lake Wylie right now.  First, fish can be caught offshore.  Schools of fish will be found around humps, deep main lake points, the areas where creek channels swing in front of points, and other depth changes.  Lots of fish will be found in 20-30 feet of water, but some can be in 15 feet of water near shallower areas.  Deep diving crankbaits, football jigs, Hopkins spoons, Ol’ Monster worms and other big baits will catch fish, but as fish adjust to angling pressure drop shot rigs and more finesse-style baits will become more effective.  Schools may even relocate.  Second, there is a good shallow bite where bass are feeding on bream that are bedding or hanging around near bedding bream.  Look for bass cruising in packs and targeting spawning bream around docks and in the backs of sandy coves.  Prop baits, swimbaits and weightless Senkos will all work, and bass will take topwater lures all day long.

Catfish: No new report from Captain Rodger Taylor (803-517-7828).  Try anchoring and drifting with cut bait, and look for the fishing to get better and better as the spawn gets further in the rear view mirror.

    Went out with Captain Rodger Taylor on Nov 7, we caught two nice blues 15 and 19 lbs. and 12 other channel cats in the first hour of fishing. We then released at least that same amount or more on a 1/2 day trip. I would say the fishing is very good on lake Wylie.

    The chiller air will slowem down.It always helps when we bait the hole with 4-5 pounds of rice.That will bring the big fish in the hole.I am talking about 25 lb + Carp and big cats.
