Lake Charlie Capps

Lake Charlie Capps is back open for fishing!
Bass fishing remains fair to good at Capps. There are lots
of fish around one half to 1.5 pounds in 2-5 feet of water still
being caught. Bigger fish are still mainly coming from along
the ridge out from the dam and from submerged structure out near
the two earthen piers. 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 continues to slow but a few are still being
caught. 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.
A few anglers report catching some nice sized bream this past
week, but it's still a little early. Try fishing near the
bottom with crickets or red worms in water at least 4 feet
