Conditions : Ross Barnett Reservoir: Bass During the warmest parts of the day try fishing around vegetation. Use Colorado bladed spinnerbaits or chartreuse colored soft plastic lures around American lotus. If your fishing early in the morning or late in the evening try using crankbaits or chatterbaits.

Bream are in shallow water. Bream sometimes move near vegetation or cover to escape the heat of the day. Target these fish using small redworms or crickets.

Crappie can be caught along the creek channel or on the points of deep drop-offs. Vertical fishing with jigs or minnows can be a good way of targeting fish. Some anglers are even trolling small crankbaits along the channels.

Fish for catfish along the bottom. Use chicken liver or cut bait to catch these fish. During the summer fishing for catfish can always be a good choice.

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.
