Bass

Bass fishing has been good recently at Natchez.  Several nice bass were caught on Carolina-rigged worms: a couple of 6 pounders, as well as an 8 and a 9 pound bass.  Buzz baits along the dam early and late in the day have also been productive. Junebug colored plastic worms, flukes, and red shad shaky heads have also been effective.

Bream

Bream fishing is fair on worms and crickets.  Also, try tightlining with worms for some of the huge Redear Sunfish that Natchez is known for.

Crappie

Currently, there are no reports on crappie.  Try fishing with minnows and jigs in 10 to 12 feet of water. 

Catfish

Catfishing is good with worms, liver, cutbait, or your favorite catfish bait.

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:
