Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Enid Lake: ??? Water level 250.80 ft, rising 0.1 ft/day; 6.4ft above rule curve Tuesday. The lake should rise from 235 ft March 1 to summer pool (250 ft) May 1.

The lake is rising slowly; more rain this week may raise it some more. Recent winds, rain, and a cold front made fishing challenging last week. This week is predicted more of the same. A fruit jar tournament in Saturday’s wind was won with 11.42 lb (7 fish); big fish was 1.98. Some spawners are still shallow, but pre- and post-spawn fish are out deeper, or at least out from the banks. Best luck has either been fishing up the river, the backs of creeks, or flats with cover (dead coffeeweed has been good) 2 – 5 ft deep (boating or wading), or trolling out from spawning areas with bright (black/chartreuse, orange/chartreuse, black/pink) jigs and/or minnows. Catfish have been biting worms or cut bait on trotlines; head upriver with rod-and-reel after a rain. White bass are up the river and creeks; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits. There is no size or number limit on white bass. Few or no reports on anything else. Largemouth bass should be moving shallow where spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, or other search lures fished over flooded cover on flats or backs of coves should draw strikes.

The spillway had one gate open 1.0 ft (360 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck down here has been for crappie on jigs and/or minnows or for catfish on natural baits. White bass are in the spillway; fish jigs or small crankbaits.

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.
