Conditions : Enid Lake: ??? Winter fishing report. Weekly updates will resume in February.

Winter fishing usually means limited ramp access. Expect rapid water level rises and drawdowns as rain events happen and the Corps tries to achieve and maintain winter pool (230 ft) from December 1 until mid-January, then it should rise to 235 ft by March 1. High winter releases should mean good fishing in the spillway. For water level information, call (662)563-4571

Winter fishing can be good since the fish often school tightly. Fish bite better after a few warm, sunny days. Unlike summer, best bet is to fish midday on sunny banks.

Best luck for crappie is either trolling or drifting along the dam and in Wallace and Bean Creeks with jigs and/or minnows or jigging in cover. White bass can be taken on jigs or small crankbaits fished off sandy main lake points. Largemouth bass usually will be in the clearest available water on any cover, on main lake points, or tributaries where soft plastics or a jig-n-pig are best baits. Catfishing is normally best using cut bait on trotlines over mudflats or on worms or stink baits in tributaries after rainfall.

Best luck in the spillway is when some water is being released. For crappie, fish jigs and/or minnows near the rocks. Catfishing is best in eddies on cut bait. For white bass, fish small crankbaits, jigs, or tailspinners in faster current. Fish for largemouths on the rocks with crankbaits or a jig-n-pig.

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 limit for black bass (largemouth and spotted) is 7 fish, any size.
