Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? A rise muddied up the water some this past weekend. A warming trend (finally) should get the crappie thinking about starting to move shallow to spawn. Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports best luck this past weekend was for crappie fishing 3 to 6 ft deep with a bright (pink, orange, red, or combo) jig tipped with a big minnow. Since they may be pre-spawn or up shallow this week, youll have to hunt for them. Fish jigs and/or minnows 2 to 6 ft deep. There have been a few good reports in the major creeks either from a boat, bank, or wading. Some catfish have been biting natural baits on the bottom in recently flooded areas of the main lake or in the rivers and creeks. White bass in the 1 - 2 lb range are biting in the rivers and major creeks. Cast jigs or small crankbaits over a sand bottom out of the main current (pockets, back side of sand bars, etc.). No reports on largemouth bass.

The spillway had one gate open 0.5 ft (100 cfs) Tuesday. The spillway backed up from downstream flooding Saturday, but has since receded. Best luck down here lately has been for catfish on nightcrawlers or shad.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? A windy, severe cold front early this week will make for difficult fishing conditions. Expect a warm-up later this week. The Crappie Masters tournament this past Friday and Saturday was won with 38.92 lb (14 fish); big fish was 3.87 lb. Crappie Masters tournament records were set for big fish, 2 day total weight and 1 day total weight (20.54 lb for 7 fish). Average weight of all crappie brought to the scales was 2.40 lb. Fish were in pre-spawn patterns and the weather should keep them there this week. Best luck was slow trolling black/chartreuse jigs tipped with minnows on or very near the bottom 4 to 6 ft deep over timbered flats in upper lake areas. A few catfish could be taken fishing natural baits on the bottom. White bass in the 1 - 2 lb range are biting in the rivers and major creeks. Cast jigs or small crankbaits over a sand bottom out of the main current (pockets, back side of sand bars, etc.). No reports on largemouth bass.

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.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Water level 200.98 ft, rising 0.1 ft/day; 1.1 ft above rule curve Monday. For water level information, call (662)226-5911

Expect a warm-up later this week. Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports folks have started picking up crappie lately, but they havent moved shallow yet since the water is still a little cool. Fish 4 to 6 ft deep in about 10 foot of water; slow-troll in the main lake or jig standing timber or other cover with jigs and/or minnows.

A few catfish could be taken fishing natural baits on the bottom. White bass in the 1 - 2 lb range are biting in the rivers and major creeks. Cast jigs or small crankbaits over a sand bottom out of the main current (pockets, back side of sand bars, etc.). No reports on largemouth bass.

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.

The spillway was only releasing 100 cfs Monday. Best luck down here lately has been for catfish on nightcrawlers or shad.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Water level 199.1 ft, rising 0.0 ft/day; 1.7 ft above rule curve Monday. For water level information, call (662)226-5911

The lake should rise from 198 ft by March 1 to summer pool (215 ft) by May 1.

Expect a warm-up this week. Best luck will likely be for crappie fishing 4 ft. to 6 ft deep in about 10 foot water, slow-trolling in the main lake or jigging over submerged brush with jigs and/or minnows. A few catfish could be taken fishing natural baits on the bottom. 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.

The spillway had one gate open 2 ft (1300 cfs) Monday. Best luck down here will be for crappie on jigs and/or minnows or for catfish on natural baits. Action will start to get better due to warmer water temperatures.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Water level 200.95 ft, falling 0.1 ft/day; 5.0 ft above rule curve Tuesday. For water level information, call (662)226-5911

Folks fishing this past weekend found the water had warmed to the mid to upper 40s, but that didnt heat up the fishing. Another polar front this week wont help. Best luck would likely be for crappie fishing less than 6 ft deep, slow-trolling in the main lake or jigging over submerged brush with jigs and/or minnows. A few catfish could be taken fishing natural baits on the bottom. 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.

The spillway had one gate open 6.0 ft Tuesday. Best luck down here will be for crappie on jigs and/or minnows or for catfish on natural baits. Action lately has been relatively slow due to cold water temperatures.

Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports a little more fishing activity in the main lake this past weekend. The lake is high, cold, muddy and falling slowly. Folks fishing this past weekend found the air was warm, but the water was still cold (mid to upper 30s) and the fish sluggish with few caught. The weather should be warmer this week. Best luck would likely be for crappie fishing deep, slow-trolling in the main lake or jigging over submerged brush with jigs and/or minnows. A few catfish could be taken fishing natural baits on the bottom.

The spillway had one gate open 6.0 ft and 2 gates open 1.0 ft each (2000 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck down here will be for crappie on jigs and/or minnows or for catfish on natural baits. Action lately has been relatively slow due to cold water temperatures.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Water level 197.62 ft, rising 1.3 ft/day; 2.4 ft above rule curve Tuesday.

The lake should rise from winter pool (193 ft) on January 15 to 198 ft by March 1.

Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports very little fishing activity in the main lake. The lake is rising fast, muddy and the water temperature is just above freezing. The weather this week is mostly cloudy and wet, with frozen precipitation likely. Fishing success this week would be slow at best. Best luck would likely be for crappie fishing deep, slow-trolling in the main lake or jigging over submerged brush with jigs and/or minnows. A few catfish could be taken fishing natural baits on the bottom. This would be a good week to rearrange your tacklebox(es) and make sure your motor is going to crank.

The spillway had one gate open 2.0 ft (800 cfs) Monday. Expect the gates to be slowly opened up as the week goes on unless we get a lot more rain. Best luck down here will be for crappie on jigs and/or minnows or for catfish on natural baits. Action lately has been very slow due to cold weather.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Winter fishing usually means limited ramp access. Expect rapid water level rises and drawdowns as rain events happen and the Corps tries to achieve and maintain winter pool (193 ft) from December 1 until mid-January, then it should rise to 198 ft by March 1. High winter releases should mean good fishing in the spillway and old river run. For water level information, call (662)226-5911

Winter fishing can be good since the fish often school tightly. Fish bite better after a few warm, sunny days. Unlike summer, best bet is to fish midday on sunny banks.

Best luck for crappie will be trolling or drifting in the main lake or jigging in cover with jigs and/or minnows. For largemouth bass, fish soft plastics or a jig-n-pig around cover in the clearest water available, usually near the dam. White bass can be taken on jigs or small crankbaits fished off sandy main lake points. Catfishing is normally best fishing cut bait on trotlines over mudflats or on worms or stink baits in the rivers after rainfall. For up-to-date information contact Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581.

Best luck in the spillway is when some water is being released. For crappie, fish quieter water out of the current either right on the rocks or in the old river run with jigs and/or minnows. Catfishing is best in eddies on cut bait. White bass will be in the current where you can drift a 2 jig rig just off bottom or fish small crankbaits or tailspinner lures. For largemouths, fish crankbaits right on the rocks.

Winter fishing report. Weekly updates will resume in February.

Contact the COE office (662)226-6090 for accessible ramps at current water levels.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports the low water means you can only get in at Grenada Landing, and there only with small boats since there is a mud hump out from the end of the ramp. The water level is at winter pool this week; most cover (timber, etc.) is on dry ground. The main lake and the river channels are about the only fishable water. Expect the big cold front this week to put a damper on the fishing. Best luck for crappie has been spider rigging jigs and/or minnows 6 – 12 ft deep fishing about 2 ft off bottom in the main lake with Carver Point and the area where the 2 rivers join the best spots. For largemouth bass, fish main lake points or any sunken cover (brush tops, stumps, etc.) 2 – 6 ft deep with spinnerbaits or Carolina rigged soft plastics. Look for bass in clearer water towards the lower (dam) end. For catfish, rod-and-reel, trotlines, or jugs (noodles) have all been producing using various natural baits. Head for the rivers and creeks if we get any rainfall runoff. White bass have been feeding on shad off sandy main lake points. Fish small, shad-imitating lures like jigs under a popping cork, small crankbaits, or tailspinner lures.

The spillway had one gate open 0.5 ft (100 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck down here has been for blue catfish (white river cats) on shad or nightcrawlers. Expect less action with the water cut back.

As the water falls, folks report balls of “fish eggs” or “jellyfish” clinging to sticks, trees, and about everything else. They are actually colonial animals called bryozoans that filter plankton out of the water. Nibbling by fish causes the colony to minimize its surface area to a rounded shape. Web search “freshwater bryozoans” for more on these interesting, ancient animals.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Fall drawdown is underway. The Corps is planning to accelerate fall drawdown to reach winter pool (193 ft) November 1 instead of December 1 to finish repairs started last year to the face of the dam.
