Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 has been getting a few more crappie reports from folks trolling jigs and/or minnows or crankbaits 10 to 18 ft deep over dropoffs and ledges on the main lake. Crankbaits have been doing better (and catching fewer short fish) with the fish a little more active with the water falling and the fish pulling into deeper channels and holes. Catfish have been biting pretty much all over any way you want to fish for them. Fish in the rivers and creeks with worms or stinkbaits or fish main lake flats with lines, noodles (jugs), or rod-and-reel with various natural baits. Look for white bass schooling on shad in the main lake; fish over sandy, main lake points with small shad-colored crankbaits or jigs. Falling water levels are pulling fish, including largemouth bass, out of the backs of creeks into the deeper channels. Fish spinnerbaits or topwaters on channel edges 4 – 6 ft deep early and late in the day or Carolina rig soft plastics 10 – 15 ft deep on offshore structure or points midday.

The spillway had one gate open 6.5 ft (2700 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck has been for blue catfish with minnows or shad drifting just above bottom with a heavy weight (and expect to lose it), either with or without a bobber. Grenada is producing the best of the four area spillways right now. There is a lot of water coming through. The bad smell in the spillway is hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg gas) that is in solution in deep water where there is no oxygen in the upper lake. As deep water is drawn through the dam, the gas comes out of solution in the spillway when the water is re-oxygenated with splashing down the tunnel and rocks.

Crankbaits have been doing better with the fish a little more active with the water falling faster. Catfish have been biting pretty much all over any way you want to fish for them. Fish in the rivers and creeks with worms or stinkbaits; falling water levels are pulling fish into the deeper channels. Or, fish main lake flats with lines, noodles (jugs), or rod-and-reel using various natural baits.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? The lake jumped about 2 ft since last week; extremely unusual for this time of year. Expect the rise to put off bass and crappie but improve catfishing in inflowing waters. As the water stabilizes and starts to fall later this week, expect catfishing to slack off and other species to improve. Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports one party has been consistently bringing in decent catches of good crappie fishing 15 to 20 ft deep over a dropoff on the main lake with jigs and minnows. Other folks fishing shallower with crankbaits or spider rigging havent been doing as well. Fish for catfish in the rivers and creeks with worms or stinkbaits as long as the runoff lasts. Afterwards, expect them to move to main lake flats where they can be taken by lines, noodles (jugs), or rod-and-reel with various natural baits. Look for white bass schooling on shad in the main lake; fish over sandy, main lake points with small shad-colored crankbaits or jigs. Best luck on largemouth bass has been fishing spinnerbaits or topwaters in clearer water on channel edges in the backs of creeks closer to the dam early and late in the day. Some bass have moved onto points 6 – 8 ft deep where Carolina rigged soft plastics will work midday.

The spillway had one gate open 5.5 ft (1800 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck has been for catfish on nightcrawlers, catalpa worms, or shad. There have been a lot of rough fish (carp, buffalo) caught recently, including some Asian carp. Largemouth bass have been hitting crankbaits fished on the rip-rap rocks. The bad smell in the spillway is hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg gas) that is in solution in deep water where there is no oxygen in the upper lake. As deep water is drawn through the dam, the gas comes out of solution in the spillway when the water is re-oxygenated with splashing down the tunnel and rocks.

Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports few folks fishing lately in the heat and/or rain. Expect heavier than normal fishing and boating traffic this holiday week; be safe. For crappie, fish 8 - 10 ft deep fishing crankbaits over main lake ledges and dropoffs. About the best action lately has been for catfish any way you want to catch them. Fish worms or stinkbaits in the rivers and creeks as long as there is any rainfall runoff. Channel catfish are spawning in holes in the rip-rap; fish natural baits under a bobber over the rocks. Male channels get big, dark bluish heads during spawning season. Blue cats (white humpbacks) can be taken on lines, noodles, or by grabbling; grabbling success has started to drop off. Look for white bass schooling on shad in the main lake; fish over sandy, main lake points with small shad-colored crankbaits or jigs. Best luck on largemouth bass has been fishing spinnerbaits or topwaters in clearer water on channel edges in creeks closer to the dam early and late in the day. Some bass have moved onto points 6 – 8 ft deep where Carolina rigged soft plastics will work midday.

The spillway had one gate open 0.5 ft (100 cfs, minimum flow) Tuesday. Best luck down here has been for catfish on nightcrawlers or shad. There have been a lot of rough fish (carp, buffalo) caught recently. Largemouth bass have been hitting crankbaits fished on the rip-rap rocks.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Water level 215.34 ft, rising 0.7 ft/day; 0.3 ft above rule curve Tuesday.

Finally we got enough rain to get to summer pool and then some, but expect the rise to shut most fishing down and muddy up the water. Cloudy weather and rain have given fish no reason to go deep yet.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Water level 213.83 ft, falling 0.1 ft/day; 1.2 ft below rule curve Monday. For water level information, call (662)226-5911

The lake didn't rise much with recent rains. The crappie spawn is winding down, but some fish are still shallow. Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports luck this past week was spotty with the fish scattered in places like Redgrass Creek and other major coves fishing 2.5 – 3 ft deep in 3 – 4 ft of water with a bright (pink, orange, red, or combo) jig tipped with a big minnow or just a minnow. Folks fishing just jigs havent been doing as well. Some crappie were caught slow-trolling jigs 5 - 7 ft deep out from spawning areas. For catfish, fish recently flooded flats or in the rivers and creeks. White bass have been moving back into the main lake where they will most likely be caught trolling for crappie. Best luck on largemouth bass should be around shallow cover in the clearest water available, usually in coves near the dam.

Historically, crappie spawning runs from about the third or fourth week of March until the last week of April, peaking the first or second week in April. It varies year to year with temperatures, rainfall, water levels, etc. This year its 2 – 3 weeks late due to cool weather and water level fluctuations. If the waters rising, crappie will spawn shallow (1 – 2 ft); if its falling, theyll spawn deeper (3 to 5 ft). Note water level trends before you set your bobber.

The spillway had one gate open 5.0 ft (1500 cfs) Monday. The Corps is doing some well maintenance and will be keeping the lake down awhile until that is finished, which is why they are pulling water instead of holding it back to fill up the lake. Spillway fishing should improve with the outflow. Fish for catfish with nightcrawlers or shad. White bass can also be caught on small crankbaits, jigs, etc.
