The lake is still down enough that nearly all fishing pressure is coming from bank anglers. For the most part, anglers are tightlining for bream and catfish with redworms and nightcrawlers. A few anglers are walking the banks throwing spinnerbaits and Texas-rigs for bass.

When the lake refills, here is the late Fall/Winter fishing report:

Without a doubt, one of the best destinations for NE MS anglers that fish during the winter months. Crappie anglers will be plentiful, targeting mainlake points and flats in 20 to 30 feet of water. Small hair jigs seem to out produce minnows. The bass will be in similar areas as the crappie, with texas-rigged finesse worms, jigging spoons, and 1 oz. spinnerbaits, Alabama rigs being good bait choices. Other than points, target the creek channels on each side of the lake for bass, crappie and bream. Contact the Park at (662) 489-2958 for up-to-date information.  Weekly fishing reports will pick back up the first week of February.

* NOTICE:  The low water boat ramp is closed until further notice due to water level being to low to launch and recover boats.  Kayaks, canoes, scamps, jon boats, etc. anything that can be launched by hand is still allowed.

Contact the Park at (662) 489-2958 for more information.
