Fishing & Boating

Fishing Report

Prentiss Walker Lake - 2/21/2018 10:29:32 AM


Bass have been reported to being very active being caught within 8 - 10 ft of water and as they begin to start prepping for spawning season.


Bream have also been reported to be active as well and be caught near the brush piles in the coves.


Crappie will be in deep water this time of year along creek channels and deep structure. Fish may be anywhere in the water column so try multiple depths until fish are located. Trolling in these areas with minnows or jigs can be very productive this time of year.

Catfish can be targeted in deep water around creek ledges and structure. Worms, liver and blood baits will be best choices for baits. 

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
