Lake Jeff Davis - 10/20/2014

For more information, call the lake office at 601-792-8225.

Water temperature:  76

Visibility: 48"

The water temperature is starting to cool off and fish are becoming more active; boat traffic has been very light.

Bass

Bass fishing is fair.  Fishermen are reporting catching good fish on soft plastics around the piers and around the campground.  Watermelon colored plastic worms have been successful.    Fishermen were having some success with whacky rigged soft plastics and topwater lures at dawn .  Harvest of small bass is encouraged at this lake.

Bass Limit: 16-20 inch slot limit; immediately release all bass between 16 and 20". Daily limit is 15 per day, only one of which can be over 20 inches.

This nice bass was caught recently.

Here's an interesting picture sent in by Richard Hathorne, the lake manager at Jeff Davis. 

 

Bream

Bream fishing was good over the past week.  Crickets, jigs, and worms have been successful around the piers and dam. Tight lining with redworms is a good way to catch redear sunfish.

Catfish

No new reports on catfish this week, but it has been fair.  Campers caught 10 off the pier one night with redworms.  Catfishing is usually good on the shallower flats and points. Try worms or liver fished on the bottom.

Crappie

Crappie fishing is good.  Good numbers of crappie are being caught around the willow trees and piers in 7 to 12 feet of water.  Fishing has been best after 6 pm.  Try fishing with minnows or various colored jigs.
