Fishing & Boating

Fishing Report

Aliceville Lake - 6/24/2019 9:26:29 AM




The bite has been poor to fair.  The heat has really slowed things down.  A few bass are still being caught on topwater baits early in the morning or during cloudy days.  Once the sun gets up, anglers are struggling to get bites.




The crappie bite was poor.  Jigs tipped with minnows have been working for some anglers around laydowns along deep banks and creek channels.




The catfish bite was fair. If you want to try your hand at catfishing, using cut/whole shad and kool-aid flavored chicken is a good bait choice. Look for areas just off the navigation channel out of the current to hold fish.


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.
