Lake Ferguson - 3/16/2018 9:18:30 AM

Fishing is usually poor during extremely high water periods like this, and it can be dangerous to be out there too.  Your best bet is to avoid fishing at Lake Ferguson until the water goes back down and fish at another nearby lake outside the levee instead.





Lake Ferguson is located in the city of Greenville, MS, inside the MS river levee. A public boat ramp is located next to the casinos. From Hwy 1 take Alexander St. west until you go over the levee and see the casinos. From Hwy 82 take Main St. west, which will also run you into the levee, casinos, and boat ramp.
