    Thanks for clarifying that. Since the water temperature was 84 degrees, I’m guessing it will be a late start for the fall turnover this year.

    Striper movement

    Old article indicating the migrations of the Striped Bass.
  11. ecox


    The striper migration in the fall is to the most abundant bait fish available that is on the upper end of the reservoir. They have been trapped on the deepest end of the lake most of the late summer where there is cool water with dissolved oxygen. Evidence by tailrace discharge temps. They are a cool water (temperate sea bass) fish seeking water temps less than 70 degrees. Lake turnover normally happens beginning in September freeing them from their thermal trap. Turnover is a poor description for the deep water in the for bay of the dam that would be better stated as mixing. Surface water temperature falling back into the low 70's should show some surface breaks.

    Why do they do that Ezel? I’d think they would wait and do that during the spring spawn.

    Fishing the Trout lakes 2019

    I went to Chilhowee Lake for the afternoon yesterday. It turned out to be an unexciting afternoon of Perch fishing. The weather forecast said 5 mph winds from the northeast. The direction part was correct but the breeze was 5 MPH when it calmed down some occasionally. It was more like 8-12 MPH most of the time. It was choppy. I had lines in the water by 1:15 p.m. It took about a half-hour to catch a Perch on a hoochie. At the time it seemed encouraging but every strike I got was light and turned out to be a Perch. This went on till 7:15 p.m. when I gave up and went home. We marked bait and fish consistently between the ramp and the fishing docks upstream from Abrams Creek. We went through there three times and caught nothing better than a small Perch. Sonar was frequently showing 50 or more fish between 10-25 feet. They were widely scattered in other parts of the lake. The largest bait ball we saw was there. The Bass and Trout ignored our lures on this day. My brother drove and I fished. He has a sore shoulder or worse.... When we arrived the surface water at the ramp was 70. When we left it was 64. When we were well upstream at Tabcat Creek it was 62. Dropping Fontana is really cooling Chilhowee down. I'm sure it never made 80 degrees yesterday. I never boke a sweat. It was a pleasant day out except seeing all those fish on sonar and not getting any savage strikes!

    don't know if this works or not, Dada, but some same adding one aspirin to the minnow bucket and keep water cold helps keep them from frying in this heat. Probably use a bit of Sure Life or another chemical brand and ice might help with minnows. We use it for our bass tourneys, Seems to work well. Just a thought

    Thanks for the info, Tube. My fishing partner, Charger 1, wanted to bring minnows yesterday, but I declined to do so because of the heat. NO MINNOWS, NO FISH! LOL dada 9-19-19 7:18 AM

    While getting boat situated, in parking area, a fellow boater pulled up beside us. Just him and me up there fighting the heat LOL See him a lot and we shoot the bull a bit. Said he had 7 crappie on fly/minnow combo but they were short of keep size. The pipeline area. Not breaking any secrets here, he doesn't care. But he did catch em.

    I didn't know these Long Tail Motors were a thing. All I've heard about in recent years has been john boats with jet propulsion.
