Prentiss Walker Lake - 7/10/2018 1:09:00 PM

Water Temperature: 90 F          Visibility: 28"


Bass fishing has been fair. Some fish are in shallow and mid-deep water off points. Try fishing around structure using various colored soft plastics, spinner baits and crank baits. Prentiss Walker is bass crowded and the harvest of smaller fish is encouraged.


Bream fishing has been good with anglers having some success using red worms and crickets. Try fishing in shallow areas around structure. 


No recent reports. Crappie have been caught in 6 - 12 ft of water along creek channels and structure. Try fishing in these areas with different colored jigs or minnows. 

No recent reports. Catfish can be targeted at about 10 - 12 ft of water. Worms, liver and blood baits will be the best choices for catching these fish. Hand grabbing season is drawing towards the end. The season started on May 1 and ends July 15 this Sunday.

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
