Enid Lake - 2/24/2015
Water level 239.3 ft, rising 0.9 ft/day; 4.9 ft above rule curve Tuesday. For water level information, call (662)563-4571 or check at http://220.127.116.11/offices/ed/edh/docs/bullet.txt for a table or http://18.104.22.168/offices/ed/edh/plots/enidplot.png for a graph. The lake should rise from winter pool (230 ft) on January 15 to 235 ft by March 1.
The lake is rising fast, cold, and muddy. More cold weather is predicted this week with warmer temperatures this weekend. Fishing success this week would be slow at best. Best luck would likely be late in the week. There have been few reports lately on anything. Best luck would likely be for crappie fishing deep, slow-trolling in the main lake or jigging over submerged brush with jigs and/or minnows.
The spillway was releasing 600 cfs Tuesday. Expect the gates to open up some more if there is no more rain. Best luck down here will be for crappie on jigs and/or minnows or for catfish on natural baits. Action lately has been very slow due to cold weather with only a few reports of small crappie.
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.
