Please be careful on Weiss Lake with the low water level !
Bass fishing is slow. The Bass are deep on the ledges on a winter pattern.
Stroking a 3/8 or 1/4 ounce brown Stanley jig with a Zoom Chunk trailer in pumpkin seed color is producing some fish. A Carolina rig with a 6 inch Zoom Dead Ringer or a Gene Larue Salt Craw in Junebug or pumpkin seed is catching fish also. Target the ledges in Little River and the main Coosa River.
Remember to fish slowly, the water is cold and the slower you fish the more bites you will get.
Little River is producing a lot of Spotted Bass , use a 4 inch Zoom Ring Worm in Smoke Glitter color or Pumpkin Seed color, fish the river channel ledges above JR's Marina. The deep rock wall in Little River below Little Spring Creek is producing some good stringers of Largemouth and Spotted bass. Try slow rolling a 1/4 or 3/8 ounce Strike king spinner bait with a double willow leaf blade, work it SLOWLY with a stop and go retrieve to imitate a dying shad, bouncing it down the rock ledge. A small 1/4 ounce jig in brown with a Zoom pumpkin seed chunk trailer worked slowly down the rock ledge is always a good winter time bait.
Crappie fishing is Great. There are good schools of crappie suspended 8 to 14 feet deep in all the major bays of the lower lake, Little River is also producing some fish in the main river channel out in front of JR's Marina.
With a warming trend look for these suspended fish to move up and really start biting.
Spider trolling 1/16 ounce Jiffy Jigs in white.blue,white and chartreuse,white,chartreuse will produce some good action.
Little Spring Creek is also producing some good catches, Spider Trolling 1/32 ounce Jiffy Jig in 3 to 7 feet of water.
The upper Coosa river is producing some fish along the main river channel above Riverside Camp Ground using minnows on a bottom bouncing rig. this rig consists of a 1/2 to 3/4 ounce bell sinker tied on your main line then tying a snelled eagle claw # 1 hook about 12 inches above your weight, fish this rig 10 to 16 feet deep along the old river channel above and below Riverside Camp ground
The Chattooga River is also producing some fair catches using a Float and Fly technique 3 to 6 feet deep around the stumps on the edge of the old river channel. Target the river from the highway 68 bridge all the way to the bridge in Gaylesville.
Striper fishing is poor The stripers have started moving up the Coosa river to make their spawning run. Fishing cut bait on the bottom in the Coosa River behind Plant Hammond has always been a great producer in February and early march. The stripers will then move up behind the Lock and Dam in Rome Georgia, waiting for the water to rise enough for them to go over and on up the Etowah and Oostanaula Rivers to spawn.
Catfish are biting poor. A few fish are being caught by jug fisherman in the main Coosa river channel near Yellow Creek
