Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 413.95 ft. and slightly rising. We've reached that time of year where TVA will hold the lake at full pool (414 ft) through the summer on into fall. Surface water temps are in the low 70's. The bass reports have been good to excellent as it took just under 22 pounds to win a team tournament there this past Saturday. It seems fish are in all stages of the spawn right now so a variety of techniques are working. Texas-rigged plastics and Carolina-rigged plastics are working for those mid depth range (5 - 10 ft) fish. Spinnerbaits, swimbaits, and swim jigs are working for those fish up shallow but not on beds. If you feel you're around fish in a shallow area but the fish aren't cooperating, slow down and try a more finesse approach like a shakeyhead or wacky rigged worm. The crappie reports are excellent with most bites coming in 6 - 12 ft of water. Yellow Creek continues to be a popular area, as does Indian Creek and Mills Creek. Both minnows and jigs are producing fish. The bream reports are picking up as fish have moved shallow and looking for a place to spawn. Crickets and redworms under a cork fished in the backs of coves is the best technique. The catfish anglers are having success along the main river gravel bars and points with cutbait and worms. Both crappie and bass anglers continue to report catching channel catfish on various artificial presentations.
