Conditions : Grenada Lake: ????? Water level 210.17 ft, rising 0.8 ft/day; 0.4 ft above rule curve Tuesday.

Although we need the water, the lake keeps jumping and muddying up from big rains. The severe cold front Monday will back fish off until warmer weather later this week. The lake still has not settled down enough with more stable water levels and rising temperatures for many crappie to move to the banks. Most females are still holding eggs. Collins’ Bait Shop (662)226-3581 reports luck this past weekend was spotty with the fish scattered in places like Redgrass Creek and other major coves fishing 2.5 – 4 ft deep in 3 – 6 ft of water with a bright (pink, orange, red, or combo) jig tipped with a big minnow. Some catfish have been biting natural baits on the bottom in recently flooded areas of the main lake or in the rivers and creeks. White bass in the 1 - 2 lb range are biting in the rivers and major creeks. Cast jigs or small crankbaits over a sand bottom out of the main current (pockets, back side of sand bars, etc.). Best luck on largemouth bass should be around shallow cover in the clearest water available, usually in coves near the dam.

Historically, crappie spawning runs from about the third or fourth week of March until the last week of April, peaking the first or second week in April. It varies year to year with temperatures, rainfall, water levels, etc. If the water’s rising, crappie will spawn shallow (1 – 2 ft); if it’s falling, they’ll spawn deeper (3 to 5 ft). Note water level trends before you set your bobber.

The spillway had all gates closed (0 cfs) Tuesday due to the spillway backing up from downstream flooding. Expect a little bit of water to be turned loose later this week. Best luck down here lately has been for catfish on nightcrawlers or shad.
