Bass fishing has been fair lately. Fish near shallow vegetation and structure. Try using chartreuse plastic worms and chrome colored spinnerbaits.



Bream fishing has been fair. Fish with crickets or small worms along the dam and near shallow structure.



Crappie fishing has been poor. Fish for crappie in deeper water. Fish in areas where there are deep drop-offs. Use a variety of different colored jigs or minnows to catch these fish.



Fishing for catfish has been good. Try fishing early in the morning. Target these fish using liver or cut bait. 


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.



Fish attractors were added in several locations in February 2015.  Be sure your GPS is set to read decimal degrees (shown below) and not degrees-minutes-seconds when attempting to locate the attractors.  Coordinates and a map are shown below:
