Water Temperature  

Conditions : Okatibbee Reservoir: Crappie fishing continues to be good. Even though the spawn is winding down some fish are still being caught in the grass on minnows and jigs. Anglers that targeted shallow water this week managed to catch a few fish but no limits. Fish will begin to move out into deeper water along creek channels and ledges. Trolling in these areas are very productive ways to catch fish. Anglers fishing creek ledges and flats along the creeks reported good numbers this past week.

Bass fishing has been good this past week. Fish can be targeted with top water lures, plastic worms and jerk baits along submerged brush and grass beds. These areas along with deeper points should produce good numbers early in the morning and late afternoon. Good size fish reported being caught this week around grass beds using plastic worms.

Catfishing has been good the last few weeks with fish being caught along the rocks by bank and boat anglers, shallow water trot lines and set hooks along the banks in the north end of the lake and hand grabbing out in open water have produced fish as well.

Good numbers of bream were caught this past week dropping crickets along the grass beds in 3 - 5 ft of water. Bluegill should be beginning to spawn as the water temperatures continue to increase. Try areas where fish have spawned in the past.
