Crappie fishing has been fair. Try targeting fish around structure with jigs or minnows in depths between 4 - 8 ft of water.


Fishing for catfish has been good lately. Try fishing with cutbait, livers, or commercially produced stinkbaits 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.
