Post spawn bass can be targeted along creek channel ledges in medium depths. Fish medium-diving crankbaits, swimbaits, and spinnerbaits along the ledges.

Bream have moved to shallow waters to spawn. Try fishing for these fish using crickets and worms.

Crappie have been scattered at various depths. Fishermen have reported catches from numerous locations and depths. Try fishing with jigs and minnows around cutgrass and other vegetation mats in shallow water or along channel ledges in medium and deep waters. The American Crappie Trail tournament concluded over the weekend with a first place weight of 14 fish/28.16 pounds. The winners averaged two pounds per fish and also claimed "big fish" with a crappie weighing 3 pounds.

Crappie are also very active below the spillway when discharge rates are high.

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.
