Contact the COE office (662)226-6090 for accessible ramps at current water levels.
Water level 200.56 ft, rising 0.1 ft/day; 2.2 ft above rule curve Tuesday. For water level information, call (662)226-5911 or check at http://22.214.171.124/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 198 ft March 1 to summer pool (215 ft) by May 1.
Don’t expect much of a warm-up this week. Best luck will likely be for crappie fishing less than 6 ft deep, 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 third or fourth week of March until the last week of April, peaking the first or second week in April.
The spillway had one gate open 3.5 ft (1300 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.
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.
