This Lake Allatoona striper and hybrid fishing guides report has been brought to you exclusively by Robert Eidson of First Bite Guide Service.

Line side fishing is slow other than a good top water bite for small white bass and 1 pound hybrids. Use a Junior Fluke behind a popping cork when you see breaking fish. It's the typical September blues for hybrids and the fish are scattered from 40 feet deep to the top. When you find them they are bunched up so tight you better be right on top of them. Fish are anywhere from Bethany Bridge to Little River. Concentrate right over the main river channel around the mouths of major creeks. Live bait is better and trolling is almost a waste of time right now. The bite will pick up in the next couple of weeks as the water cools. October is a great hybrid month on Allatoona. Usually when it hits 75 degrees, this lake catches fire for hybrids.
