For more information, call the lake office at (601) 442-2658

Water Temperature: 85 F          Visibility: 20"



Bass fishing has been fair. Try fishing near shallow vegetation. Anglers have been having some success using June bug finesse worms. 



Bream fishing has been good. Fish with crickets or small worms near shallow structure.



Crappie fishing has been poor. Fish for crappie in deeper water. Fish in areas where there are deep drop-offs. The visibility is low right now, so target these fish with brightly colored jigs.



Fishing for catfish has been good. Try tight lining with chicken liver and night crawlers on points or treetops in 10 - 15 ft. of water.


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:
