Lake Charlie Capps

Monday, March 27, 2017 9:28 AM

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:

Creel Limits:    

  • 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.
