Anglers targeting panfish should have success in Newnans Lake during the next several months. Bluegill and redear sunfish will be bedding around the vegetation in the east shoreline from Powers boat ramp to Hatchet Creek, while black crappie will return to open water as the water temperature increases. Minnows or grass shrimp are popular baits for all panfish species and both locations.

Although black crappie catches have been off and on over the last several months, the crappie bite is expected to improve as they make their way to the shoreline with declining temperatures. The east shoreline from Powers boat ramp to Hatchet Creek has been the most productive area.


on December 3rd

Water levels increased over five feet at Newnans Lake due to Tropical Storm Debby and afternoon showers, and flooded the cypress fringe around the lake that assists with producing productive fisheries. Recent fish surveys along the east shoreline revealed surviving populations of black crappie, bream, and catfish that appear abundant following the drought and low lake levels.
