Bee Lake Fishing Report

Anglers should start seeing fishing at Bee Lake pick up in the next few days. Great weather and warmer temperatures should allow anglers the oppurtunity to get out and catch some fish.  

Spring time offers great oppurtunities for some great crappie fishing. Majority of the anglers that are catching crappie are trolling along the outside edges of the cypress trees. These anglers are fishing in about 8-10 feet of water and are fishing about 6 feet deep. You may also try jigging in brush piles in 4-6 feet of water. Minnows or jigs are the normal choices for bait at Bee.

For bass, try fishing soft plastics around the cypress trees or around the docks and piers in the northern arm of the lake in water 4 - 6 feet deep. You may also try spinnerbaits or jigs near downed logs or brush piles near the shoreline.

For bream, try using crickets or red worms and fishing around the deep cypress knees. Bream fishing is still usually slow during this time of the year. However, as temperatures continue to rise, bream fishing would continue to improve during the next few months.

For catfish, try fishing near culverts or pipes with flowing water into the lake, as catfish like to stack up around these areas.  Worms, chicken livers, or stink bait are all good choices for bait.

There is a $5 launch fee to use the ramp at Bee Lake.
