Lake Report

on July 31st

The lake is now full and lake can be accessed at all concrete ramps. Things should start picking up with the warm weather. Many new fish attractors were placed during the drawdown, so it’s a great time to get out and motor around the lake marking new spots

Crappie and catfish have been biting fairly well lately on worms and cutbait. The river portion of Blue Mountain Lake can be accessed off the newly renovated Hise Hill ramp near Sugar Grove. This area was renovated by the AGFC during summer. It was widened and the area dug out, so that access to the river is now possible.

The Army Corps of Engineers began a drawdown of Blue Mountain Lake July 5 to improve aquatic vegetation, make repairs to launch ramps and buoys, and complete other projects. The lake will be dropped to 379 feet msl, which is 7 feet below the normal pool elevation. This will take about 26 days, depending on rainfall.
