Bass fishing has been fair. Bass can be caught in shallow water. Try using spinnerbaits around shallow structure. Anglers have been having some success using Carolina rigged soft plastic lizards. The slot limit for largemouth bass is 18" - 22" with a creel limit of 7 bass per angler.  Only one bass over 22" can be harvested.



Bream fishing has been fair. Fish with crickets and small worms near shallow structure. 



Crappie fishing has been good. Some crappie have started to move to shallow waters. Target these fish with minnows or jigs.



Fishing for catfish has been good. Try tight lining with chicken liver and night crawlers on points or treetops in 10 - 15 ft. of water.



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.



Fish attractors were added in several locations in February 2015.  Be sure your GPS is set to read decimal degrees (shown below) and not degrees-minutes-seconds when attempting to locate the attractors.  Coordinates and a map are shown below:
