About Eagle Lake  
The Catfish Cabin

at Eagle Lake, Mississippi  

Eagle Lake, located just northwest of Vicksburg, provides some phenomenal Mississippi bass fishing and is known for a wide variety of other fish which include crappie, large bluegill, bream, hybrid stripers and catfish–all of which can be caught with the guidance of the many Eagle Lake outfitters. 

In addition to its reputation as one of the finest Mississippi bass fishing spots, Eagle Lake is also known for its boating and recreation and has a public boat ramp to make it easy for you to bring your boat to use and enjoy our great weather.

The Army Corps of Engineers has a control structure located on Muddy Bayou which reduces the pesticides and herbicides that might otherwise flow into the lake during spring runoff seasons.  This structure has helped Eagle Lake rebound as a major fisheries.

Eagle Lake is replenished annually by the Mississippi River which enters the lake through a chute on the lower end.

At one time, Eagle Lake was part of the Mississippi River, but the river changed course, as it was prone to do, and created this "ox bow" gem.
