Fishing Report

Eagle Lake - 6/18/2018 8:44:25 AM

Yore Country Store and The Landing have plenty of bait and supplies. 

***New crappie regulations went into effect October 1, 2015.  The creel limit was reduced from 50 to 30 fish per angler, and all fish 11" and under must be released immediately.***

Hot weather and pop-up thunderstorms have slowed fishing down on Eagle recently, and reports are difficult to come by.


Bass fishing has been slow.  Try locating schooling fish with crankbaits, and topwater lures fished early and late work well.  Bass must be over 16" to keep at Eagle Lake.  All bass 16" and under must be immediately released.


Bream fishing is fair to good.  Some anglers have success sight-fishing with crickets around the piers.


Crappie anglers aren't having much luck lately.  Try fishing deeper ledges with small minnows or jigs.


Fishing for catfish is always a good option on Eagle, and they are biting.  Try cutbait or chicken livers fished on the bottom. 

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.
