Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 414.36 ft. with a very slow rise at the time of this report. For bass, catching fish isn't a problem as numerous reports of 40-50+ fish days continue to come in. Most anglers are still having trouble finding those quality bites. Bass are slowly moving into their warm season patterns as the spawn is all but over. It took 21 pounds to win a local team tournament out of J.P. Coleman State Park this past Saturday. Big fish for the tournament went 6.28lbs. This time of year, it’s hard to beat a T-rigged lizard and spinnerbait for covering water out from traditional spawning areas. A jig or hollow bodied swimbait might get you that bigger quality bite. Some anglers are starting to target the ledges with some success throwing crankbaits, jigs and T-rigged worms. A few reports are coming in of some quality fish coming on topwater around shallow cover and bream beds. The crappie bite has slowed down some, but a few anglers are still catching some quality 14+ inch fish. Mills Creek, Goat Island and Yellow Creek continue to be the popular areas as anglers are drifting/trolling jigs for suspended fish they found using their electronics. The catfish bite has really picked up over the last week and should continue to get better as we approach the spawn. It’s still a bit early for the fish to be spawning, but they aren’t far off so get your fly rod ready. A few anglers are using jugs and tight-lining and are having a little success with cutbait and koolaid flavored chicken. The fish caught this past weekend were mainly from folks tightlining the bottom with shrimp and cutbait. Grabbling season has started and anglers need to keep in mind that you may only keep one fish over 34 inches.
