Ross Barnett Reservoir - 12/3/2014

Ross Barnett Reservoir

Pelahatchie Bay 

Weekly fishing reports will return in February.   Below are some tips for fishing in winter and early spring.  

Catfish can be caught on trotlines or by tight lining on the deep flats.

Crappie anglers should concentrate their efforts near stumps and timber along the edge of Pelahatchie Creek and under the causeway bridge.  Jigs and minnows are the best baits.  Bass anglers should fish along the rip rap after a few sunny days

 

Main Lake 

Weekly fishing reports will return in February. Below are some tips for fishing in winter and early spring.

Lower Lake:

Catfish can be caught on trotlines or by tight lining on the deep flats.

Crappie anglers should concentrate their efforts in the old oxbow lakes near Rose’s Bluff or near the City of Jackson water intake structure along the dam.

Bass anglers should fish along the rip rap near Main Harbor after a few sunny days.

 

Upper Lake:

 

The best crappie fishing occurs after heavy rains that produce current on the river.  That pushes fish up into the giant eddy below and east of the bridge across the Pearl River at Mississippi Highway 43.  Fishing is good until the current subsides.  Fish for bass in the dead pad fields until the stems are gone.

 

Above Highway 43

Weekly fishing reports will return in February. Below are some tips for fishing in winter and early spring.

 

Most crappie are caught off the deep stumps that line the river channel.

The best bass catches come from the points and cuts up the river.
