Lake Charlie Capps - 6/12/2019 3:54:56 PM


Lake Charlie Capps is now open again after flood waters have receded. Anglers have been slow to return, however, and fishing has been slow to moderate at best.  A few small bass have been caught, but that's about it.

Since the fish kill in 2017 Capps has been re-stocked with bass, bream, catfish, and triploid crappie.  These fish should continue to grow and reproduce and fill the lake. 




Creel Limits:    

  • Bass - 5 per day
  • Bream - 100 per day
  • Crappie - 20 per day 

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.  Only bank fishing and non-motorized boats may be used.
