Water Temperature: 66

Bass fishing is good on lipless crankbaits, and junebug or tequila sunrise plastic worms fished slowly around structure. Some fish are also being caught on top water lures. Most fish are weighing in around a pound to a pound and a half, but there have been some 3 and 4 pound fish caught recently as well. Mike Conner is bass crowded, and the harvest of small bass is encouraged.
Bream fishing is fair. Some nice Redear Sunfish are being caught on worms fished on the bottom in about 7 feet of water. Fishermen using red worms, and black jigs tipped with wax worms are having some success as well.
Crappie fishing slow, but anglers fishing around the dam valve and piers are catching a few on small jigs.
The catfish bite has picked up. One angler using nightcrawlers caught four fish weighing 10, 12, 21, and 22 pounds. Try worms or chicken livers fished on the bottom.
Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Fisheries Biologists use various sampling methods to assess the fish populations in the State’s waters. Sampling results for selected water bodies are summarized in Reel Facts Sheets.
New fish attractors were added at this lake to improve fish habitat. The brushpiles were added in various depths, but most are located in 3 - 6 ft. of water. Five brushpiles were sunk on the levee in 15 - 20 ft. Below are GPS coordinates for some of the sites. Be sure your GPS is reading decimal degrees (shown below) and not degrees-minutes-seconds when locating these attractors.
