Fishing Report

Kemper County Lake - 6/24/2019 9:43:48 AM



The bass bite is fair.  Topwaters are working early in the morning.  Shaky heads, underspins, and Carolina rigs are catching some fish around deeper points and banks.




The bream bite has picked up some on meal worms or red worms around brush and along primary drop-offs. Crickets are generally your best bet for bedding Bluegill.




The crappie bite is slow.  Crappie anglers are targeting cover in the 10 – 15 ft. depth range. Jigs tipped with minnows were doing well for some anglers. GPS coordinates for numerous deep water structures are listed below.




Some bream fishermen are catching a few catfish here and there.  Tight lining liver and/or night crawlers is the best technique. Target some of the deeper laydowns and along the levee.


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
