Conditions : Grenada Lake: ????? With the lake on a fast rise, expect most fishing, except for catfish in the river and creeks, to be slow. Fishing should improve later in the week as the water level stabilizes and starts to clear and fall again. Collins’ Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports best luck for crappie has been spider rigging minnows 6 – 12 ft deep, but no reports of many big fish yet. The Friday-Saturday Crappie Masters tournament was won with 25.97 lb (14 fish); big fish was 2.56. Anglers were hampered from getting on main lake river ledges and other structure due to high winds and rain. There have also been reports of crappie caught jigging the Bryant Landing/Turkey Creek area fishing 6 ft deep in 10 ft of water. For catfish, fish in the rivers and creeks with worms, shad or stink baits as long as the rainfall runoff lasts. Look for white bass schooling on shad in the main lake; fish over sandy, main lake points with small shad-colored crankbaits or jigs. When the lake resumes falling, it will pull fish, including largemouth bass, out of the backs of creeks into the deeper channels. Fish spinnerbaits or topwaters on channel edges 4 – 6 ft deep early and late in the day or Carolina rig soft plastics 6 - 10 ft deep on offshore structure or 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 had one gate open 2.0 ft (500 cfs) Tuesday. Expect it to open up and fishing to improve later in the week. 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. Every once in awhile, there are some crappie caught, but no consistent pattern. Grenada is producing the best of the four area spillways right now.
