Fishing Report

Simpson County Lake - 7/17/2018 7:14:43 PM


Bass have moved to mid-deep water ranging from 4 - 10 ft. Try fishing with soft plastic lures and medium diving crank baits in these areas.


Bream are in and around structure. Try fishing in the upper end around stumps or around shallow brush piles throughout the lake. Fishing shallow sandy points are also good locations for bream.


Crappie are along creek channels and deep structure. Try trolling with minnows and jigs in open water out from the dam. This should be a efficient way to target fish.


Catfish can be caught in 6 - 12 ft of water. Fishing with liver and cut bait should produce the best results. 


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
