Fishing Report

Okatibbee Reservoir - 9/11/2018 3:19:02 PM

For daily temperature, water level, and release you can call the automated report at (601) 626-8431 option 3.

BASS

Bass fishing can get tough during the hot days. Fishing at dusk may provide the best action as bass leave heavy cover to prowl flats. Try targeting these fish using spinnerbaits, different colored crankbaits and soft plastic lures.

BREAM

Try fishing near structure in shallow coves using crickets and worms. Look for bream roaming near the bottom at about 3 - 6 feet of water.

CRAPPIE

Crappie are in deep water. You can also find fish roaming the creek channels. Try targeting these areas using small crankbaits or jigs.

CATFISH

Fishing on the bottom in creek channels with liver, worms or cut baits should be the best method for harvesting catfish.
