Fishing Report

Lake Lowndes - 11/12/2019 1:43:57 PM
Species Detail
Largemouth Bass There have been very few fishermen out, and no current reports on bass fishing were available. Recent electroshocking resulted in 3 bass over 7 pounds and a variety of smaller fish, however. Try fishing laydowns or submerged structure off of points. Anglers are strongly encouraged to keep all of the small bass they catch; bass under 16" are crowded up and need thinning out.
Crappie Crappie fishing has been hit-and-miss. Roadrunners and small crankbaits are being used to catch some fish. During recent electroshocking, crappie were concentrated heavily around the fishing pier as well as lay-downs.
Bream The bream bite is slow, but a few have been caught on crickets. Any wooded cover in those areas should be holding a few fish.
Catfish Catfishing has been fair, and Lake Lowndes has some big catfish! Try targeting the creek channel and around the deeper points and laydowns with night crawlers, cut shad, and liver. Tightlining is a popular technique for catfish. The fishing pier at the boat ramp is a popular spot.
