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.

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.

Fishing success this week would be slow at best. Best luck would likely be late in the week. 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 1200 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.

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.

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 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.
