Fishing ReportTippah County Lake - 11/13/2018 12:54:27 PM
Attention Anglers: The boat ramps at Tippah Lake have been closed in order to conduct repairs to the ramps and courtesy piers. Repairs should be completed by December of 2018.
Having only bank access, very few anglers are visiting the lake. Try making long casts, with shakeyheads, Texas/Carolina-rigged plastics, jigs, and spinnerbaits. Any visible cover should hold a fish or two.
The bream bite is slow. A few anglers making long casts with tight line presentations around visible cover and points. Worms are the best bait.
No crappie report as of late.
A few anglers are having success. Most anglers are tight lining worms or live bait around deeper cover or around the creek channel. Making long casts out with tight lined presentations is the best technique.
Lengths to Release:
Catfish: no length limit
Creel Limit (per person, per day):
Statewide creel limits apply to all other fish species.
Only rod and reel or pole fishing is allowed on State Fishing Lakes except that carp, gar, buffalo, and bowfin may be taken by use of bow and arrow at night only after purchasing a valid permit for fishing and/or boating. No other gear is allowed at these lakes.
Fishing is not allowed from courtesy piers adjacent to boat ramps. Night fishing is allowed from the bank or boats which are in compliance with state and coast guard regulations.
MDWFP personnel sank donated Christmas trees in Tippah Lake this past winter. The brush piles are a good way to upcycle leftover Christmas trees and create fishing hot spots. Here are the coordinates for those brush piles.
