Fishing Report

Lake Lowndes - 9/19/2017 1:32:53 PM

Surface water temps are running in the low 80’s with around 4 ft of visibility. The fishing traffic continues to be slow. For bass, the early morning and late-evening topwater bite continues to be decent. Some folks have been throwing topwater baits along the dam while others are hitting the points and the flats on the main lake. Weightless soft plastics and spinnerbaits are also a good lures for these late summer/early fall bass. Texas-rigged plastics, jigs, and deep-diving crankbaits have been popular choices along the creek channel from the behind the cabins toward the boat ramp. The few bream reports coming in are from anglers fishing from the pier and along the bank. Most are tight-lining crickets and redworms in those transition areas with cove. The laydowns running from banks to the drop-offs are holding fish. No crappie or catfish reports this past week.  


For more information, give the folks at the park a call at (662) 328-2110
