Water temp: 48 degrees. Fishing has actually been great up on Lake Jocassee this winter. Now we are catching big numbers of what we call Stockers. These fish are 12-14 inches on average with a few making it over 15 inches. Now what we are all looking for up there are those trophy class fish which have been biting as well. I have been very sucessfull in the backs of the rivers using med shinners or small blue back herring on downrods from 30-60 foot. Now you wont fill the boat with these big fish making a patient wait and fishing for those handfull of bites. More or less saying those big fish will only give you a few shots in a day if any, but if you capitolize and hook and land this fish, it may be the biggest trout of your life. As far as trolling, the main lake has been producing some really large fish. Ive seen some fish go over 7 lbs this winter with a few friends catching a few over 8 and one over 10. Those are studs of trout for anywhere in the country. fishing due to go off the hook in Jocassee standards as the water starts to warm!
