AHQ INSIDER Lake Jocassee (SC) Spring Fishing Report – Updated March 15

  • by Jay

The newest Lake Jocassee fishing report can be found at: http://www.anglersheadquarters.com/ahq-insider-lake-jocassee-sc-spring-fishing-report/

 

March 15

Lake Jocassee is at 87.4% of full pool, and water temperatures remain around 56 degrees.  Clarity remains above average for Jocassee (very clear).

There’s not much change in the trout bite on Lake Jocassee, and Guide Sam Jones (864-280-9056) reports that fish remain pretty scattered up the creeks and rivers.  You have to do a lot of looking to locate fish, but once you find them they will bite.  Decent numbers of 4- and 5-pound fish are being caught on Sam’s boat, and in the tournament over the weekend there was a 6 ½ pound fish landed.  Plenty of small fish are also being caught.  The best depth range for trolling spoons and large minnows has moved a bit shallower to 20-50 feet, and fish have not started to move into the bigger water yet.
