AHQ INSIDER Lake Greenwood (SC) Fall Fishing Report – Updated September 1

  • by Jay

The newest Lake Greenwood fishing report, updated September 15, can be found at: http://www.anglersheadquarters.com/ahq-insider-lake-greenwood-sc-fall-2017-fishing-report/

September 1

Lake Greenwood water temperatures are in the lower 80s, and water levels are at 438.50 (full pool is 440.0).

Veteran tournament angler Stan Gunter reports that bass fishing on Lake Greenwood has gotten tougher again.  Anglers are still fishing the tail end of the deep pattern pulling worms around brush, but as temperatures drop into the 70s shad will start to move into main lake pockets and creeks.  Fishing a shakey head worm around docks is a good bet for now, but before long there should be a really good topwater bite on buzzbaits.

On the catfish front, Captain Chris Simpson says that reports indicate that anchoring on points and humps and fan-casting stinkbait is the best bet to get channel catfish of all sizes in the boat right now.  5-20 feet is typically the best depth at this time of year.

The night time flathead bite is also good, and live bream and white perch fan-casted in the same areas is a good bet.
