Fishing Report 

Water Temp: 92°

Visibility: 36"

Largemouth bass are biting best early morning in the morning or late in the afternoon near lilies. Try frogs skipped across the tops of lily pads or live minnows fished deep.

Bream are starting to bite around the piers and in the pads near the back of the lake.  Fishermen are having the most luck on live worms. 

Catfish can be caught with worms or livers fished on the bottom in the old creek channels.  They are biting very well around the pier across from the office on livers and live worms fished on the bottom.

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.
