This map is all about the Coosa. it includes places to eat, marinas, public boat launches, and current fish consumption advisories.
The spawning period in fish responds accordingly to the temperature of the water. The bass of the Coosa spawn in the springtime when the water temperatures hit about 55 degrees. Fishermen track water temperatures during this time to better predict where the fish are- which increases the likelihood they will catch a fish! Each spring, our Citizen Scientists (from Rome, GA to Wetumpka) take the water temperature and upload it to this map. Ever since we started Temp Track in 2018, fishermen have been HOOKED!
The pre-spawn feeding time is how bass make it through the spawn (period where they lay eggs), where they may not eat for up to 14 days.
Wider & deeper points of the river, leading into a cut or small shallow cove.
Living in deep waters, feeding as much as possible to prepare for the stressful act of spawning.
