Fishing Report 

Temperature: 88°

Visibility: 42"

Largemouth bass can be caught along the dam, in shallow areas near structure, and near the back of the lake around cover. Try soft plastics, jigs and spinnerbait.  Tournament anglers have been landing fish regularly in the 4-6 pound range.

Crappie are biting well all around the lake but can be caught best around structure in 5 to 7 feet of water on minnow-tipped jigs. They are biting best in the shade around the piers.

Bream are being caught off the long pier near the office.  Fish for them in 5 to 10 feet of water on crickets or worms fished on the bottom.  Both bluegill and redear are starting to bed around the piers and in shallow areas around the lake.

Catfish are starting to bite well on bottom in the old creek channel and a few of the coves.  Fishermen are having the best luck using cutbait near the spillway.

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.

Closed bridges are marked with a red X.
