Fishing Report

Lake Lowndes - 8/14/2017 10:10:28 AM

Water temps are running around 83 degress with water visibility around 3 ft. For the most part, the bite for just about everything is pretty slow as the late summer grind is here. Not many folks are casting for bass right now, but an early morning and late-evening topwater bite around shallow cover can be had with pop-r’s, buzzbaits and other small prop baits. In between those periods, Texas/Carolina-rigged plastics and crankbaits are catching a few bass in the creek channels and deeper points. The few bream reports are from anglers fishing from the pier and along the bank. Tightlining redworms and crickets is the most popular technique. No crappie or catfish reports this week. If you plan on targeting crappie, using your electronics to find deep cover along the creek channel will be important to getting bites.



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