Fishing Report

Kemper County Lake - 6/27/2017 1:37:12 PM


Numerous brush piles were added during 2015 that provide quality habitat. This structure may be found at depths from 6 - 20 ft and at multiple locations.   There has been a recent report of bass schooling and some good numbers of spots  being caught using pop-r lures.  No current reports at this time.


Bream can be targeted around structure in 8 - 12 ft. of water. Tightlining with crickets or worms should be the best method this time of year.  The bream bite has improved with the  warmer weather.  There are no current reports at this time.


Deep structure along the old road bed and in the cove to the left of the dam should start holding some fish.  Fishing vertical with jigs and nibbles or trolling with minnows or jigs should prove to be productive. GPS coordinates for numerous deep water structures that were added in 2015 are listed below.  The catch pictured below was taken off one of the brush piles in 8 to 12 feet of water recently. The cooler full below was recently taken from deep water.  No current reports at this time.


Target catfish in 8 - 12 ft of water where structure is present. Liver, worms or minnows fished on the bottom are the most popular methods this time of year.   There are no current reports at this time.
