Fishing Report

Eagle Lake - 8/14/2018 2:26:18 PM

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 lately. Bass are usually searching for schools of small fish. Try locating these fish with crank baits or spinner baits.  Bass must be over 16" to keep at Eagle Lake.  All bass 16" and under must be immediately released.


Bream fishing has been slow.  Some anglers are having success fishing around shallow structure using worms or crickets.


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


No recent reports, but catfish are your best bet during the summer solstice.  Try cut bait or chicken livers fished on the bottom.  Look for post-spawn catfish in deep holes.

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.
