Fishing Report

Simpson County Lake - 6/27/2017 1:59:16 PM

Visibility 43"  Water Temp. 81

BASS

Bass have been biting good around submerged brush piles or deep points that contain structure or sudden contour change. Crank baits or soft plastics fished slowly in these areas should be good choices for lures. Fish may also be found around creek ledges where structure may be present.  No lunker fish reported, but some  nice 2 - 3 lb fish are being taken.

CRAPPIE

Try crappie along creek channels and deep structure with jigs or minnows. Open water out from the dam should be a good area to target fish. Numerous brush piles were added in this area during January 2016.  There are no current reports at this time.

BREAM 

Tight lining for bream with red worms and crickets at depths of 4 - 6 ft has been very productive lately and one of the best places is from the road to the campground.  Another good place is the pier on the campground road casting near the dead tree out from the pier. 

CATFISH

Catfish can be targeted in deeper water along creek channels that contain some type of structure. Liver, worms, or minnows fished along the bottom can be productive late in the year.  There are no current reports at this time.
