Our source for Sardis Lake fishing, Ron Wong, told us, "Sardis Lake remains well above normal summer pool. Much of the lake is clearing with some stain in creeks after periodic thunderstorms. Bass having been biting well and will continue to do so around secondary points in major creeks using either a Carolina-rigged Strike King Game Hawg or Rage Cut-R worm and a Texas-rigged Zoom Ole Monster 10-inch worm. Junebug and Plum are good colors to use. Target Clear and Thompson creeks secondary points. Topwater bite for bass is good early and late on north side of the lake on points using a Strike King Sexy Dawg or Whopper Plopper. Wilburn, Nelson and Greasy creeks are good places to fish. Crappie are biting well and will get better as the water warms in deeper water with spider-rigs or pulling crankbaits. Capps and Coleman double minnow rig fished 10 - 15 feet deep over deeper water with medium to large minnows will work well while moving .5 to .8 mile per hour. Trolling Strike King series 3 or 3XD crankbaits in pink or shad colors while moving .8 to 1.5 miles per hour will be best. Good areas to fish are from the front of Toby Tubby to Clear creek and from the front of Holiday Lodge to Greasy creek. For those that want to vertical jig, target standing timber in front of Piney Point and Hurricane creek using a Strike King Joker or Shadpole fished 12 - 14 feet deep over deeper water. Catfish are biting well around boat ramps or on outside bends of the river near the Highway 7 bridge using cut shad or shrimp. Bream are biting well around J.P. Coleman State Park and Blackwater creek using crickets fished 3 to 4 feet deep."
