Fishing Report

Okatibbee Reservoir - 8/5/2020 11:29:21 AM
Species Detail
Largemouth Bass Fish near the emergent vegetation around the lake. Use weedless lures like Texas rigged soft plastics or spinnerbaits. If your fishing on an open shallow flat use silver colored crankbaits or blue colored jerkbaits.
Crappie The edge of the creek channel is still a great place to catch fish. Use live minnows to catch these fish. If you want to target crappie that aren't at the creek channel try fishing in deep water out from the dam. When fishing out from dam try using jigs or trolling small crankbaits.
Bream Target bream in shallow water near structure. Use small worms, crickets or small insect imitating jigs to catch these fish.
Catfish Catfish can be targeted tight-lining in open deep water. Fishing on the bottom with liver, worms or blood baits can also be very good methods for harvesting catfish.
