Lake Charlie Capps is back open for fishing!
Bass fishing remains good at Capps. Fish are moving up
shallow and can be caugh in 2-5 feet of water. Soft plastics
fished along the shoreline, especially on whatever bank is out of
the wind, is usually productive. Spinnerbaits can also work
well. Creel limit is 5 fish per day of any size....keep some
of the small ones to help us thin out the numbers.
Crappie fishing has been good at Capps lately. Only the
hybrid Magnolia crappie are in Capps, and they are all nice and
healthy looking and around 1-2 pounds in size. Some folks are
catching them from shore with minnows, jigs, or small
spinners. Fishing in 3-6 feet of water from a boat is
productive also. Most anglers are catching 5-10 fish, but
they are all good ones.
For bream, try fishing near the bottom with crickets or red
worms in water at least 4 feet deep. Bream fishing should
pick up once the water temps warm some.
Please see below for regulations and license requirements:
- Bass - 5 per day
- Bream - 100 per day
- Crappie - 20 per day
Only bank fishing and non-motorized boats may be used.
All anglers except those exempt from purchasing a fishing license
must carry on their person an annual Wildlife Management Area user
permit to fish at Lake Charlie Capps. These are available
wherever hunting and fishing license are sold.
