Conditions : Enid Lake: ??? Best pattern lately for crappie has been pulling crankbaits for suspended fish 12 – 16 ft deep out in the mouths of creeks or in the main lake. A lot of short fish are being reported; use bigger baits and fish deeper to discourage smaller fish. Pinch down the barbs on crankbait hooks to make releasing short fish faster and less damaging; it does no good to release dead fish. Quite a few catfish and white bass have been hitting crankbaits meant for crappie. Catfishing on lines or rod-and-reel has been picking up as fish start feeding after they’re done spawning. White bass are in the main lake feeding on shad; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits over sandy points. There is no size or number limit on white bass. For largemouth bass, fish spinnerbaits or topwaters in shallower water over flooded cover early and late in the day and crankbaits or soft plastics in deeper water on channel edges or main lake points midday; look for clearer water.

As the water falls, folks report balls of “fish eggs” or “jellyfish” clinging to sticks, trees, and about everything else. These are actually colonial animals (like coral) that filter plankton out of the water. Nibbling by fish results in a rounded colony. Web search “freshwater bryozoans” for more on these interesting, ancient animals.

The spillway had two gates open 2.0 ft each (1500 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck down here has been for catfish on natural baits. Flatheads have been biting live bait.

About: - MDWFP electrofishing last fall found good spawns of crappie, bass, and white bass this past spring. There were good white crappie spawns in 2009, 2010, and 2011. The big 2009 year class averaged just under 12 inches in November and is growing normally. The abundance of smaller fish bodes well for crappie fishing through 2015. Bass from 2007 and 2008 were abundant from 14 to 17 inches (1.5 to 2.5 lb), but there were also good numbers of bass to over 7 lbs. Bream were not extremely abundant, but many were one-third to one-half pound.

Contact the COE office (662)563-4571 for accessible ramps at current water levels.

The daily creel limit for crappie on Enid Lake is 20 per person. Crappie must be over 12 inches. Anglers fishing Enid Lake may use no more than 5 poles per person. The 12 inch length limit does not apply to the reservoir spillway, but the spillway has a 20 crappie creel limit.
