For daily temperature, water level, and release you can call the automated report at (601) 626-8431 option 3.

Bass

Fish for bass around shallow structure or vegetation. Try using weedless lures like soft plastic worms or lizards. Early in the morning bass are foraging on schools of shad. Topwater lures can provide some exciting action during this time.  

 

Bream

Try fishing for bream near Twitley Branch campground. Use red worms or crickets to catch these fish. 

 

Crappie

Crappie can be caught in deep water along the edge of the creek channels. Try using purple or chartreuse colored jigs to catch these fish. Vertical fishing with minnows may also be a good choice. 

 

Catfish

Try fishing for catfish in deep water away from the dam. Use baits such as worms, liver and blood baits.
