Fishing Report 

Temperature: 88°

Visibility: 36"

Largemouth bass can be caught in lily pads and near structure.  The bite is slow in shallow waters as temperatures increase, try fishing deeper with 10"-12" worms.  Black, Junebug and Watermelon Seed are the colors of choice for worms. 

Redear and Bluegill are bedding and can be caught in shallows near their beds on red worms and crickets.

Catfish are biting on livers fished on the bottom in channels.  

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.

 

Catfish bite is improving at Lake Bill Waller.
