Fishing Report

Lake Lowndes - 1/16/2018 10:42:37 AM

Late Fall/Winter fishing report: Most anglers fishing Lowndes State Park during the winter will be targeting crappie, with a few bass fishing. Crappie can be found relating to the creek channel that winds down the middle of the lake. Best depths will be anywhere from 10 to 25 feet deep. Jigs or jig/minnow combinations will be best bait choices. The bass will also relate to the creek channel, but don’t overlook the laydowns on the deep bank adjacent to the channel. Jig-n-pig combos, Alabama rigs, and shakeyhead worms will out produce most other baits day-in and day-out. Contact the Park at (662) 328-2110 for up-to-date information. Weekly fishing reports will pick back up in February.



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