Water level 239.45 ft, rising 0.05 ft/day; 4.1 ft above rule curve
Tuesday. For water level information, call (662)563-4571 or check at
for a table or
for a graph. The
lake should rise from 235 ft March 1 to summer pool (250 ft) by May 1.
Don’t expect much of a warm-up this week. Best luck will likely be for
crappie fishing 6 ft deep or less, slow-trolling in the main lake or
jigging over submerged brush with jigs and/or minnows. Catfish should be
biting natural baits in inflowing waters. Historically, crappie spawning
runs from about the last week of March until the first week of May,
peaking the second week in April. It varies year to year with
temperatures, rainfall, water levels, etc.
The spillway had 2 gates open 1.0 ft each (600 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck
down here will be for crappie on jigs and/or minnows or for catfish on
natural baits. Action lately has been relatively slow due to cold water
