Fishing Report

Tippah County Lake - 8/14/2017 10:33:50 AM

Not much change to report this week as the grind of late summer is here. Bream anglers are reporting a fair bite. Most anglers are targeting deeper water (4 – 10 ft) near bedding areas. Tight-lining red wigglers or crickets have been the best techniques. The bass bite is fair with most biting on Texas/Carolina-rigs around deeper points and creek channels. Downsizing you lures may get you a few more bites. Also look for a shallow bite around the grass early and late in the day with weightless worms, flukes, and frogs. The crappie reports are poor, but the few anglers catching fish are trolling minnows and jigs around deep brush. For catfish, try fishing from the bank with nightcrawlers or live bait. Popular areas have been around the levee, the boat ramp, and behind the campground.
