Fishing Report

Kemper County Lake - 9/17/2019 9:55:17 AM



The bass bite was slow to fair.  Try topwaters early in the morning around the lily pads.  Shaky heads and finesse jigs are catching some fish around deeper points and banks.  Anglers may want to try night fishing for a better chance of catching bass.




The bream bite was fair to good.  Crickets and red worms around brush and along primary drop-offs produced the most fish.  Look for bigger bream to be around fish attractors near bedding areas.




The crappie bite has been fair; some very nice crappie were caught on jigs and minnows recently.  GPS coordinates for numerous deep water structures are listed below.




The catfish bite has been poor.  Tight lining liver and/or night crawlers is the best technique. Target some of the deeper laydowns and along the levee.


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
