Bass fishing is fair on soft plastics, crankbaits, and chatterbaits.
Bream fishing has been good recently on crickets. Tightlining with nightcrawlers or mealworms should be a good bet for catching some of the huge Redear Sunfish that Natchez is known for having.
Crappie fishing is fair on minnows and jigs.
Catalpa worms are the hot bait for catfish right now. If you can't find them, try cutbait, livers, or commercially produced stinkbaits.
Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Fisheries Biologists use various sampling methods to assess the fish populations in the State’s waters. Sampling results for selected water bodies are summarized in Reel Facts Sheets.
