Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 and MDWFP angler creel surveys this past week showed crappie fishing has picked up recently with the main lake point from Skuna ramp to Carver Point the best area. Fish deep-running crankbaits 16 – 20 ft deep. A lot of short fish are being reported; use bigger baits and fish deeper to discourage smaller fish. Pinch down the barbs on crankbait hooks to make releasing short fish faster and less damaging; it does no good to release dead fish. Quite a few blue catfish and white bass have been hitting crankbaits meant for crappie. Catfishing on lines or rod-and-reel has been picking up as fish start feeding after theyre done spawning. White bass are in the main lake feeding on shad; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits over sandy points. Where the two rivers join is usually the best spot for “stripes”. There is no size or number limit on white bass. For largemouth bass, fish spinnerbaits or topwaters in shallower water over flooded cover early and late in the day and crankbaits or soft plastics in deeper water on channel edges or main lake points midday; look for clearer water.

As the water falls, folks report balls of “fish eggs” or “jellyfish” clinging to sticks, trees, and about everything else. These are actually colonial animals (like coral) that filter plankton out of the water. Nibbling by fish results in a rounded colony. Web search “freshwater bryozoans” for more on these interesting, ancient animals.

The spillway had one gate open 8.0 ft (2600 cfs) Tuesday. Fish for blue catfish (white humpbacks) with nightcrawlers, shad, or minnows under a slip cork. Catfishing has improved in the spillway area, but folks have also been doing well fishing rods or lines with live bait on down the river below the spillway. A few white bass (“stripes”) are hitting jigs or small crankbaits in the faster water.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 and MDWFP angler creel surveys this past week showed best luck for crappie pulling crankbaits 10 – 12 ft deep and 1.7 – 1.8 mph for suspended fish both in the main lake and in the Skuna River arm. A lot of short fish are being reported; use bigger baits and fish deeper to discourage smaller fish. Folks fishing jigs and/or minnows are catching almost all short fish. Quite a few blue cats have been incidental catch on crankbaits fished for crappie. Most grabblers have been having trouble getting to boxes set out before the water rose. Both blues (white river cats) and flatheads (yellow cats) have been grabbled recently. Grabbling season ends July 15. Catfishing on lines or rod-and-reel has been picking up as fish start feeding after theyre done spawning. White bass are in the main lake feeding on shad; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits over sandy points. Where the two rivers join is usually the best spot. There is no size or number limit on white bass. For largemouth bass, fish spinnerbaits or topwaters in shallower water over flooded cover early and late in the day and crankbaits or soft plastics in deeper water on channel edges or main lake points midday; look for clearer water.

The spillway had one gate open 8.0 ft (2600 cfs) Tuesday. Fish for blue catfish (white humpbacks) with nightcrawlers or minnows under a slip cork. Some flatheads to over 30 lbs have been landed recently. Better luck for catfish has been fishing lines with live bait in the river below the spillway instead of in the rip-rapped area. A few white bass (“stripes”) are hitting jigs or small crankbaits in the faster water.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Fishing should improve this week with little chance of rain so the lake can clear up, stabilize, and start to fall.

Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 and MDWFP angler creel surveys this past week showed most folks after crappie have been jigging cover or trolling jigs and/or minnows or crankbaits 6 to 10 ft deep a couple of feet off the bottom in creek mouths or in the main lake. A lot of short fish are being reported; use bigger baits to discourage smaller fish. Channel cats are spawning in holes between rip-rap rocks; fish worms or other baits under a bobber. Lines and noodles (jugs) are also producing. Grabblers are getting mostly blue cats; few flatheads have been seen yet. White bass are back in the main lake; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits over sandy points. There is no size or number limit on white bass. Largemouth bass are 2 – 6 ft deep where spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, or other search lures fished over flooded cover on flats or secondary points in coves should draw strikes; look for clearer water.

The spillway had one gate open 2.0 ft (650 cfs) Wednesday. Expect the gates to be opened up more later this week if theres no more rain. Crappie fishing in the spillway has dropped off, although some can be taken in the old river channel fishing minnows under a bobber. Best luck down here has been for blue catfish (white humpbacks) fishing nightcrawlers or minnows under a slip cork. Some folks have been catching hand-sized bream on worms or crickets.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 and MDWFP angler creel surveys this past week showed most crappie anglers have been jigging or slow trolling 5 to 10 ft deep out from spawning areas or in the main lake. Piney Woods and Choctaw area have been producing; fish about a foot off the bottom. Catfish are starting to spawn, and channel cats are moving toward rip-rap rocks; fish worms or other baits under a bobber. Lines and noodles (jugs) are also producing. No reports on grabbling yet. White bass are mostly back in the main lake; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits. There is no size or number limit on white bass. Largemouth bass are 2 – 6 ft deep where spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, or other search lures fished over flooded cover on flats or secondary points in coves should draw strikes; look for clearer water.

The spillway had one gate open 3.0 ft (950 cfs) Tuesday. Crappie fishing in the spillway has dropped off, although some can be taken in the old river channel fishing minnows under a bobber. Best luck down here has been for blue catfish (white humpbacks) fishing nightcrawlers or minnows under a slip cork.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? The lake rose again from last weeks rains, muddying up the upper ends and putting a damper on fishing. The lake is still rising, but should crest this week. Windy conditions have made fishing difficult recently, but most of this week is expected to be clear and dry. Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 and MDWFP angler creel surveys this past week showed some crappie still being caught shallow spawning before the latest rise, but not since (yet). Crappie have been scattered with the lake rising and fronts moving through. Most folks have been jigging or slow trolling 5 to 7 ft deep out from spawning areas or in the main lake. Expect a late wave of crappie to hit the banks when the water level stabilizes. Fish the backs of creeks or coves with cover (cypress and ironwood trees have been good) 2 – 4 ft deep (boating or wading) with bright (black/chartreuse, orange/chartreuse, black/pink) jigs and/or minnows. With the fresh water coming in and the lake rising, catfish have been biting about any bait any way you want to fish for them. Folks here have been setting boxes getting ready for grabbling season. White bass are moving back down the river and creeks; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits. There is no size or number limit on white bass. Largemouth bass have moved into 1 – 4 ft of water (look for the clearest water you can find) where spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, or other weedless search lures fished over flooded cover on flats or the backs of coves have been drawing strikes.

The spillway had one gate open 2.0 ft (600 cfs) Tuesday. Crappie fishing in the spillway has dropped off. Best luck down here has been for blue catfish (white humpbacks) fishing nightcrawlers or minnows under a slip cork.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Water level 212.68 ft, stable; 3.6 ft above rule curve Tuesday. For water level information, call (662)226-5911

The lake is stable, murky, and clearing; more rain predicted this week may raise it some more. Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 and MDWFP angler creel surveys this past week indicated a lot (not all) of females have spawned. Best luck has been slow trolling black/chartreuse or orange/chartreuse jigs and or minnows (minnows are doing better) 5 to 7 ft deep in the mouths of spawning coves. Some fish can still be taken fishing up the rivers, the backs of creeks, or flats with cover (dead coffeeweed has been good) 2 – 3 ft deep (boating or wading) for spawning fish. Catfish have been biting shad or cut bait on trotlines. White bass have started moving up the river and creeks; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits. There is no size or number limit on white bass. No reports on anything else. Largemouth bass should be moving shallow where spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, or other search lures fished over flooded cover on flats or backs of coves should draw strikes.

The spillway had one gate open 6.0 ft (1700 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck down here has been for crappie on the rocks and in the old river run or white bass in the faster water with jigs taking either species. Blue catfish (white humpbacks) have been hitting nightcrawlers fished under a slip cork, but success has been spotty; there one day, not the next.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Water level 212.07 ft, rising 0.3 ft/day; 9.7 ft above rule curve Tuesday. For water level information, call (662)226-5911

The lake is rising and muddy. Expect a big cool-down this weekend with rain and a strong cold front and temperatures near 30o F that will likely put a damper on the spawn awhile. Collins Bait Shop (662)226-3581 and MDWFP angler creel surveys this past week indicated some males have moved shallow, but bigger females are still out deeper, or at least out from the banks. Best luck has either been fishing backs of creeks 1 – 3 ft deep (boating or wading) and catching mostly males, or trolling out from spawning areas with black/chartreuse jigs and/or minnows and getting some big females. A few limits were reported Saturday, but fewer fish Sunday and Monday. The crappie tournament this past weekend was won with 18.19 lbs (7 fish). There were a bunch of fish over 3 pounds weighed in, with two tied at 3.51, before a 12 year old young man brought in a 3.92 lb beast to trump the experts. Catfish have been biting shad or cut bait on trotlines. White bass have started moving up the river and creeks; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits. There is no size or number limit on white bass.

The spillway had one gate open 6.0 ft (1700 cfs) Tuesday. It is unknown if they will open the gates up anymore with the Mississippi River high. Best luck down here has been for crappie on the rocks and in the old river run or white bass in the faster water with jigs taking either species. Blue catfish (white humpbacks) have been hitting nightcrawlers fished under a slip cork.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? Water level 211.01 ft, rising 0.3 ft/day; 11.2 ft above rule curve Monday. For water level information, call (662)226-5911

The lake is rising and muddy. The water has warmed up some, but is still too cold for crappie to spawn. MDWFP angler creel surveys this past week showed most folks fishing for crappie and catching a few fishing 2 ft off the bottom in 7 – 9 ft of water slow trolling in the timber. Few reports on anything else; catfish should be biting natural baits in inflowing creeks and rivers. White bass have started moving up the river and creeks; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits. There is no size or number limit on white bass.

The spillway had one gate open 6.5 ft (1800 cfs) Monday. Best luck down here has been for crappie on the rocks and in the old river run or white bass in the faster water with jigs taking either species.

Full Report: Grenada Lake: ????? The lake is rising fast, cold, and muddy. Water temperature havent risen much due to the snow/ ice melt off. Precipitation is predicted for the rest of this week, with warming temperatures. Fishing success this week would be slow at best. Best luck would likely be this weekend. There have been few reports lately on anything but blue catfish (white river cats) that have been biting natural baits on lines. 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.

The spillway was releasing 2400 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 very slow due to cold weather.
