Fishing Report

Kemper County Lake - 11/13/2017 9:15:18 AM


Numerous brush piles were added during 2015 that provide quality habitat. This structure may be found at depths from 6 - 20 ft and at multiple locations.   There has been a recent report of bass schooling and some good numbers of spots  being caught using pop-r lures.  The reports from last week say the catch rate improved.


Bream can be targeted around structure in 8 - 12 ft. of water. Tightlining with crickets or worms should be the best method this time of year.  The bream bite continues with cooler temps,.  The reports coming in for bream have been good over last few weeks.


The bite has turned on over the last couple of weeks.  Deep structure along the old road bed and in the cove to the left of the dam should start holding some fish.  Fishing vertical with jigs and nibbles over deep structure  or trolling with minnows or jigs should prove to be productive. GPS coordinates for numerous deep water structures that were added in 2015 are listed below.  This nice tailgate full was taken off brush tops using a jig fishing 8' to 12' deep on 11/08/2017.



Target catfish in 8 - 12 ft of water where structure is present. Liver, worms or minnows fished on the bottom are the most popular methods this time of year.   Over the last couple of weeks some nice catches were reported.
