Fishing ReportTippah County Lake - 10/16/2017 12:15:35 PM
The bream reports have been fair with most anglers hitting shallow flats adjacent to the creek channel. Best depths have been 4 – 8 ft. Tight-lined redworms and crickets are both good bait choices. Some quality size redear are showing up. Crappie anglers are hitting deeper water along the creek channel at the lower end of the lake. Trolling minnows and jigs have been the best technique. Best depths have been around the 10 – 15 ft mark near the creek channel. Bass reports are picking up as the fall feeding frenzy has started. Brushtops and shallow flats with any cover on them has been the best pattern. Texas-rigged plastic worms, spinnerbaits, senkos, or flukes have been best lures. Don’t overlook a topwater bite early and late in the day as the water temps continue to drop. A popper or a walking style lure are good choices this time of year. A recent survey of the lake revealed the lake is overstocked with bass so remember to keep some bass next time you’re at Tippah to help increase the average size in the population. A few quality size catfish are being caught on whole, live bream tightlined near the creek channel and around some of the deeper laydowns on the east side of the lake.
