Fall fishing forecast

Mississippi_Department_of_Wildlife_Fisheries_and_Parks_logoThe Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks (MDWFP) fisheries biologists are excited about the fall fishing season in Northeast Mississippi.
Fishing in this region has already started to improve, as water temperatures decrease.
Fall bass anglers should target lakes that have large shad and shiner populations such as Pickwick, Bay Springs, Trace State Park and the Canal Section Lakes A through E that make up the Tenn-Tom Waterway.
Crappie and bream fishing is also improving as the seasons begin to change. Columbus and Aberdeen Lakes boast some of the best fall crappie fishing in the state. Most anglers at these lakes fish around submerged structure in the old river runs. The state fishing lakes in Northeast Mississippi provide great fall fishing opportunities, too.
Lake Monroe, Tippah County Lake and Elvis Presley Lake are recommended for a small, quiet atmosphere.
These lakes have abundant shoreline access so a boat is not needed.
