Fishing Report

Kemper County Lake - 11/13/2018 12:43:11 PM



Fishing traffic has slowed down due to the recent cold weather and rainfall. Anglers are throwing willow-leafed spinnerbaits, suspending jerkbaits, crankbaits, and small swimbaits along primary drop-offs in search of active fish. Other anglers are throwing Texas/Carolina-rigged soft plastics and shakeyheads around points and primary drop-offs in search of those fish who aren’t actively feeding.




A few bream anglers are targeting deeper shoreline woody cover. Tight lining worms seems to be the best technique.




Anglers are fishing with both minnows and jigs around off shore cover. The houseboat is a popular area for anglers. GPS coordinates for numerous deep water structures are listed below.




Target catfish along primary drop-offs where cover is present. Tight lining liver, worms, or cut bait is the most popular method for catching catfish. Some anglers continue to target the deeper water along the dam.



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
