Fishing Report

Simpson County Lake - 8/21/2019 1:18:21 PM


Bass can be caught in shallow water. Use soft plastic lures around shallow woody debris. Try fishing with spinnerbaits on the northeast end of the lake around the stump field. 



Search for bream that are roaming shallow coves. Try fishing with crickets and small worms in these areas.  



Target crappie in deep water. Use jigs or minnows to catch these fish. Also, try fishing in deep water away from the dam.  



Try fishing with cut bait or liver in water between 9 - 12 feet deep. Anglers might have some success fishing near fish attractors in deep 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
