Conditions : Okatibbee Reservoir: Weekly fishing reports will return in February. Below are some tips for fishing during the winter and early spring.

For daily temperature, water level, and release you can call the automated report at (601) 626-8431.

Crappie can be caught in the deeper parts of the lake on creek ledges in and around structure using jigs or minnows. Any deep structure could be holding fish. Trolling out in open water along creek ledges is a good method for catching fish this time of year. Starting at the bridges and following those creeks going south are typically good places to catch crappie. The creek that runs around the point at Twittley Branch campground and the creek along the Sunken Island are also good places catch fish this time of year. Orange/chartreuse or chartreuse/white are popular jig colors. Don't forget the nibbles!! Several brush piles were added in 2015 and their GPS locations are listed below.

Bass can be targeted in the deeper parts of the lake along creek channels, deep structure, and points that may be close to feeder creeks. Deep diving cranks or jig and pig combos work well ths time of year. Warmer days may put fish into stump fields at Collinsville beach or the one north east of the big island. Grass beds are great areas also for those warmer days

Catfish can be caught on trotlines in deeper water during the winter months. Typical baits such as minnows, liver or worms should be effective. Try areas with deeper bank edges that may have a creek running close by.

Bream can be caught in 8 - 10 ft of water on crickets and worms. Bream tend to move deeper and around structure during the winter months.
