Fishing Report

Simpson County Lake - 8/14/2018 2:54:25 PM


Bass are in shallow water around structure. Try fishing with soft plastic lures in these areas. Crankbaits and spinnerbaits are also good for bass foraging on schools of fish. 


Bream are in and around structure. Try fishing in the upper end around stumps or around shallow brush piles throughout the lake. Fishing shallow sandy points are also good locations for bream.


Crappie are along creek channels and deep structure. Try trolling with minnows or jigs in open water out from the dam. This should be a efficient way to target fish.


Catfish can be caught in 6 - 12 feet of water. Fishing with liver and cut bait should produce the best results. 


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
