Fishing Report

Simpson County Lake - 4/18/2018 7:42:39 AM


Bass are beginning to move to shallow waters. Try fishing with soft plastics lizards and spinner baits around partially submerged structure to catch these fish.


Bream are about to start moving up. Try fishing for bream in the upper end around stumps or around shallow brush piles throughout the lake. Fishing shallow sandy points are also good locations for bedding bream.


Try crappie along creek channels and deep structure with jigs or minnows. Try trolling open water out from the dam. This should be a good area to target fish.


Catfish have been caught on cut bait near brush piles around 10 ft 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
