Fishing Report (Week of 02/18/18)
Water Temp: 70°
Most fishing is picking up in shallow waters as the temperatures rise. Bedding activity is beginning with Bass, Crappie and Bream around the lake.
Largemouth bass can be caught around the spillway and near the middle of the lake. Try jerk baits, spinners and swim baits.
Crappie can be caught around structure in 5 to 7 feet of water on minnow-tipped jigs. Slow trolling small crankbaits or minnows can also be effective. They seem to be biting most readily near structure.
Fish for bream in 5 to 10 feet of water on crickets and worms fished on the bottom.
Catfish can be caught with worms or livers fished on the bottom in the old creek 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 these
