Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report for:
With duck season winding down and fishing season just around the corner, we thought we'd bring you a little fishing info this week. We don't have a lot to go on. But from what we've heard, the crappie fishing would be considered good right now. They're catching them in anywhere from 6-16 feet of water, or even deeper if you can find it.
Good reports have come in from both the north and south ends of the lake. Wind has definitely been a factor as of late. Jackie recommends the deepest water you can find in a given area right now. Wind could likely dictate where that might be. If you can get a calm day, just head for the deep water. Minnows are the top bait.
Lake level is 8-10 inches above pool stage.
No reports on other species, since ain't nobody fishin for nuthin else.
Of note: The Grassy Island area of the Reelfoot National Wildlife Refuge will re-open it's waters on February 1st. The Long Point waters will re-open on February 16th.
We'll resume our weekly reports in March. If we get enough information we'll post reports sporadically between now and then.
