Conditions : Ross Barnett Reservoir: Weekly fishing reports will return in February. Below are some tips for fishing in winter and early spring.

Pelahatchie Bay - Catfish can be caught on trotlines or by tight lining on the deep flats.

Crappie anglers should concentrate their efforts near stumps and timber along the edge of Pelahatchie Creek and under the causeway bridge. Jigs and minnows are the best baits. Bass anglers should fish along the rip rap after a few sunny days

Main Lake Weekly fishing reports will return in February. Below are some tips for fishing in winter and early spring.

Lower Lake: Catfish can be caught on trotlines or by tight lining on the deep flats.

Crappie anglers should concentrate their efforts in the old oxbow lakes near Rose’s Bluff or near the City of Jackson water intake structure along the dam.

Bass anglers should fish along the rip rap near Main Harbor after a few sunny days.

Upper Lake: The best crappie fishing occurs after heavy rains that produce current on the river. That pushes fish up into the giant eddy below and east of the bridge across the Pearl River at Mississippi Highway 43. Fishing is good until the current subsides. Fish for bass in the dead pad fields until the stems are gone.

Above Highway 43 Weekly fishing reports will return in February. Below are some tips for fishing in winter and early spring.

Most crappie are caught off the deep stumps that line the river channel.

The best bass catches come from the points and cuts up the river.

About: - Lake Ross Barnett is one of our best known big bream lakes. Large bluegill and redear sunfish make this lake a popular attraction to anglers. In spring 2005, the average weight of bream kept by anglers was 0.5 pounds. The average weight in other agency-owned fishing lakes is 0.4 pounds. A high percentage (67%) of anglers came to fish strictly for bream, and anglers kept 77% of the bream caught.

Small largemouth bass are numerous and anglers are encouraged to harvest bass that are 10-14 inches long. During spring 2005, bass anglers kept only 18% of the bass that were caught and the average weight was 0.7 pounds. This is well below the average weight for harvested bass in other agency-owned lakes (1.7 pounds).

The majority of anglers (49%) during the spring of 2005 were from Smith and Covington Counties. Jones County anglers made up 16% and 10% were from Simpson County. The remaining 35% came from five other Mississippi counties and 4% came from out-of-state.

There are 4 fish attractor buoys at this lake. Christmas trees have been placed around each buoy. These attractors are great places to fish for crappie in the cooler months of the year.
