Water level 239.45 ft, rising 0.05 ft/day; 4.1 ft above rule curve Tuesday. For water level information, call (662)563-4571 or check at http://126.96.36.199/riverstage/bullet.txt for a table or http://ftp.mvk.usace.army.mil/offices/ed/edh/graphs1.htm for a graph. The lake should rise from 235 ft March 1 to summer pool (250 ft) by May 1.
Don’t expect much of a warm-up this week. Best luck will likely be for crappie fishing 6 ft deep or less, slow-trolling in the main lake or jigging over submerged brush with jigs and/or minnows. Catfish should be biting natural baits in inflowing waters. Historically, crappie spawning runs from about the last week of March until the first week of May, peaking the second week in April. It varies year to year with temperatures, rainfall, water levels, etc.
The spillway had 2 gates open 1.0 ft each (600 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck down here will be for crappie on jigs and/or minnows or for catfish on natural baits. Action lately has been relatively slow due to cold water temperatures.
Contact the COE office (662)563-4571 for accessible ramps at current water levels.
The daily limit for black bass (largemouth and spotted) is 7 fish, any size.
The daily creel limit for crappie on Enid Lake is 20 per person. Crappie must be over 12 inches. Anglers fishing Enid Lake may use no more than 5 poles per person and no more than 2 hooks or lures per pole. There is a 50 crappie per boat limit for boats with 3 or more anglers. The 12 inch length limit does not apply to the reservoir spillway, but the spillway has a 20 crappie creel limit.
