Bass fishing has been good. Bass can be caught in shallow water. Try using soft plastic lizards or fish imitating swimbaits.  



Bream fishing has been fair. Fish for bream in and around shallow structure. Use crickets or small earthworms to catch these fish. 


Crappie fishing has been poor lately. Crappie may have moved back to deep water due to the recent cold front. Try fishing along the creek channel using jigs or minnows.  



Fishing for catfish has been fair lately. Try using liver or cut bait fished on the bottom. The creek along the nature trail may produce some strikes.




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.
