Please be careful with the low water levels !
Weiss Lake is at the mid November lake level !
Bass fishing is fair. The best bite is early and late. With the very high water temperature the top water bite is over untill things cool down. Carolina rigged plastics worked slow in 15 to 25 feet of water on the edges of the old Coosa river channel is producing the best. A 3/8 ounce jig in a brown craw fish pattern is also a good lure on these deep water ledges. Anytime they are pulling water look for the bass to pull up on the points in the Bay Springs and Yellow Creek area and in the Power House lake.
Crappie fishing is Fair. The crappie are on the main Coosa River and other creek channel ledges. Night fishing on these ledges with minnows and Jiffy Jigs is always a good bet to catch a few crappie and beat the heat of summer. Bumping bottom in 10-18 feet of water with live minnows and Jiffy Jigs is producing some fair fishing.
Striper fishing is Poor. With low oxygen levels in the lake the Stripers have shut down. Plenty of small schooling Stripers and White Bass in the 1-2 pound range are being caught working the surface, chasing shad in the main lake from the causeway in Cedar Bluff to the powerhouse lake. You can catch these fish on a 3 inch white or pearl Sassy Shad or curlytail grub on a 1/4 ounce jig head.
Catfish are biting Good. Catfish are being caught all over the lake. Jug fishing in the bays of the main lake is a sure way to load the boats with some nice fish. Use live bream, cut bait, whole crappie heads or any kind of stink bait.
