Weiss Lake Alabama Fishing Report By Mark Collins Guide Service

Please be careful with the low water levels !

Weiss Lake is at the mid December lake level !

There are very few boat ramps that are usable on Weiss Lake, all of the private owned ramps are without water, the public ramp on Hwy 9 is still usable and the public ramp in the canal in Leesburg is still usable. We are working with the state oif Alabama and Alabama Power to get some boat ramps repaired so everyone can still come fish Weiss Lake. I will report every week on lake conditions and the progress of repairs to the ramps !

Bass fishing is fair. The bass have moved shallow in the main lake due to the falling water and low oxygen levels. Work main lake points and flats near the main river channels with shallow running crank baits like the Gizz 4 and the Bandit 100 series

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. Shooting docks that are on the main Coosa River channel with a 1/24 ounce Jiffy Jig in color JJ13 is still producing some good catches.

Striper fishing is Poor. With low oxygen levels in the lake the Stripers have shut down.

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.
