Water level 203.1 ft, rising 0.8 ft/day; 5.7 ft above rule curve Tuesday. For water level information, call (662)226-5911 or check at http://22.214.171.124/offices/ed/edh/docs/bullet.txt for a table or http://126.96.36.199/offices/ed/edh/plots/grenplot.png for a graph. The lake should rise from winter pool (193 ft) on January 15 to 198 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 but blue catfish (white river cats) that have been biting natural baits on lines. 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 1200 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 very slow due to cold weather.
Contact the COE office (662)226-6090 for accessible ramps at current water levels.
The daily creel limit for crappie on Grenada Lake is 20 per person. Crappie must be over 12 inches. Anglers fishing Grenada Lake may use no more than 3 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.
