Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Winter fishing report. Weekly updates will resume in February.

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.

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.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Water temperatures are in the high 40s. More seasonable temperatures this week may improve things slightly. Access is limited at some ramps at current water levels. Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports fishing pressure has been light with windy, rainy weather. Latest report for crappie was fishing 5 – 6 ft deep in 8 ft of water in Jacks Slough. Slow trolling jigs and/or minnows near the bottom 8 - 9 ft deep has also been producing in the Skuna River area, Carver Point, and the mouth of Perry Creek. For catfish, fish worms, shad, or stink baits in the rivers and creek channels or on main lake flats. Shad or flavored chicken works better on bigger blue catfish (white river cats) than worms or chicken livers. Look for white bass schooling on shad in the main lake; fish over sandy, main lake points with small shad-colored crankbaits, swimbaits, or jigs. For largemouth bass, jigs, swim baits, or soft plastics on any cover on steep banks in coves near the dam.

As the water falls, folks report balls of “fish eggs” or “jellyfish” clinging to sticks, trees, and about everything else. Those blobs 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 round shape. Web search “freshwater bryozoans” for more on these interesting, ancient animals.

The spillway had two gates open 6.0 ft each, one open 11.0 ft (4000 cfs) Tuesday. Crappie can be caught on jigs and/or minnows fishing 5 – 8 ft deep in the old river run. Blue catfish can be caught with minnows, nightcrawlers, or shad drifting just above bottom with a heavy weight (and expect to lose it), either with or without a slip-cork.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Water level 203.50 ft, falling 0.4 ft/day; 4.4 ft above rule curve Monday.

Expect fishing to slow down with a big cold front late this week. Access is limited at some ramps at current water levels. Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports fishing pressure has been light with hunting seasons starting. Best luck for crappie lately has been slow trolling jigs and/or minnows a couple of feet off the bottom, with 8 – 9 ft the best depth then; cooler temperatures may bring the fish shallower. The “usual suspects” (Skuna River area, Carver Point, the mouth of Perry Creek, etc.) have been producing fish. For catfish, fish worms, shad, or stink baits in the rivers and creek channels or on main lake flats. Shad or flavored chicken works better on bigger blue catfish (white river cats) than worms or chicken livers. Look for white bass schooling on shad in the main lake; fish over sandy, main lake points with small shad-colored crankbaits or jigs. As the lake falls it pulls fish, including largemouth bass, out of the backs of creeks into the deeper channels. Fish spinnerbaits, swim baits, or soft plastics on river or creek channel edges 2 – 6 ft deep early and late in the day or fish crankbaits or soft plastics 4 – 10 ft deep on any cover (brush tops, stake beds, old timber) off main lake points midday.

The spillway was releasing 4000 cfs Monday. There have been some reports of crappie being taken on jigs and/or minnows fishing 8 – 9 ft deep in the old river run. Best luck has been for blue catfish with minnows, nightcrawlers, or shad drifting just above bottom with a heavy weight (and expect to lose it), either with or without a slip-cork.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? With the lake on a slow fall, expect most fishing to pick up a little. Water levels are stable and starting to clear up and fall. Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports best luck for crappie has been spider rigging minnows 6 – 16 ft deep and long lining crankbaits, tournament this past weekend big fish went 3.3 lbs. It took around 16 lbs to win tournament with a 7 fish limits. Crappies are still scattered try fishing mouth of creeks and river. For catfish, fish in the rivers and creeks with worms, shad or stink 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. When the lake resumes falling, it will pull 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 6 - 10 ft deep on offshore structure or points midday.

As the water falls, folks report balls of “fish eggs” or “jellyfish” clinging to sticks, trees, and about everything else.

Web search “freshwater bryozoans” for more on these interesting, ancient animals.

The spillway had three gate open at 0.5 ft, 11.0 ft, and 0.5 ft. (3000 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck has been for blue catfish with minnows, nightcrawlers, or shad drifting just above bottom with a heavy weight (and expect to lose it), either with or without a slip-cork. Every once in awhile, there are some crappie caught, but no consistent pattern. Grenada is producing the best of the four area spillways right now.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports crappie fishing has been relatively slow; best luck has been pulling crankbaits or spider-rigging jigs and/or minnows 10 to 16 ft deep over dropoffs and ledges and deeper channels and holes in the main lake. Expect fishing to improve as water levels and temperatures drop. Numbers of fish are not high, but fish landed are big. They have also received reports of crappie caught jigging the Bryant Landing/Turkey Creek area fishing 6 ft deep in 10 ft of water. For catfish, fish in the rivers and creeks with worms or stinkbaits with the water falling, 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.

Every once in awhile, there are some crappie caught, but no consistent pattern. Grenada is producing the best of the four area spillways right now. 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.
