Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Sardis Lake: Water level 254.94 ft, rising 0.2ft/day; 9.1 ft above rule curve Tuesday. For water level information, call (662)563-4531

The lake is rising and muddy. Expect a big cool-down this weekend with rain and a strong cold front and temperatures near 30o F that will likely put a damper on the spawn awhile. The main lake at the surface was about 55o F this past weekend, but most fish are still holding about 12 ft deep where it’s colder. Some males have moved shallow, but bigger females are still out deeper, or at least out from the banks. Best luck has either been fishing backs of creeks 1 – 3 ft deep (boating or wading) and catching mostly males, or trolling out from spawning areas with jigs and/or minnows and getting some big females. One fish brought in at Holiday Lodge weighed 3.90 lb on digital scales. The folks at Wyatt’s Crossing bait shop http://www.wyattscrossingoutdoors.com/ report best luck lately has been for crappie and catfish with a few crappie limits Saturday, but with less luck Sunday and Monday. White bass have started moving up the river and creeks; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits. There is no size or number limit on white bass.

The spillway had two gates open 3.0 ft each (1300 cfs) Tuesday. It is unknown if they will open them up anymore with the Mississippi River high. Best luck down here has been has been for crappie on jigs and/or minnows. White bass and catfish have been coming from the faster water.
