Fishing Report

Lake Charlie Capps - 7/5/2018 10:52:26 AM

Fishing remains slow right now as the lake continues to recover from the fish kill last fall.  



Bream fishing has been very poor so far this year.  There are lots of small bream out there, but the bigger ones are few and far between.  Try using crickets in waters less than 4 feet deep.



For bass, try to fish soft plastics or small crankbaits along the shoreline, especially around the brush piles.  The catch has been poor, and very few fish over a pound have been caught this year.





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.
