Conditions : Pickwick Lake: The water level is 414.30 and slowly falling at the time of this report. Surface water temps have dropped some due to the cooler weather and rainfall over the weekend and are now in the low 80s. Current, or lack thereof, continues to play a major role in the bite for several species. Bass reports are varying, depending on who you talk to. The bite continues to be challenging for most as quality bites get tougher to come by as we continue through the dog days of summer and fish get used to seeing a lot of the standard lures anglers throw. However, a few anglers figured the fish out this past weekend as it took 26lbs to win a team trail tournament out of JP Coleman State Park this past Saturday. The deep, off-shore bite continues to produce good fish if you can get them to bite, but with very little current running, its proving to be tough. Deep diving crankbaits, C-rigs, football jigs, spoons and big T-rig worms are all catching fish. The nighttime bite is continues to be good along the bluff walls in Bear and Yellow Creek. Black spinnerbaits and jigs are working there. Reports of good stripers are still coming in from behind both Pickwick and Wilson dams. Swimbaits and spoons are both working. Catfish anglers have been having mixed success on cut bait, flavored chicken and whole skipjack. Best depths for larger fish bumping the bottom has been 15-20 ft, with deeper water nearby. A reminder that the Mississippi handgrabbing season is now closed.
