Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 409.87 ft. and starting to rise due to heavy rains throughout the region over the past couple days. Along with rising water levels, we will see an increase in current this week due to those same heavy rains continuing throughout the Tennessee River drainage. The bass bite is still good for numbers as the schoolers are still chasing the shad. The quality bite is getting slightly easier to find as the water temps continue to fall. Numerous patterns are working as some are finding some quality fish using buzzbaits to cover water, while others are using a jerkbait around the schools of shad. The Arig is starting to produce a few fish as well. The hydrilla bite still seems to be fairly popular but is diminishing. Flukes, swimbaits and senkos are working where a weedless presentation is required. In those areas that don't require a covered hook, anglers are throwing a multitude of shad imitating lures like spooks, chug bugs, spinnerbaits and lipless crankbaits to catch their fish. A few anglers are choosing not to target the shallower fish in hopes of a bigger bite off shore in 10-15ft of water on some of the shallower humps. These anglers are throwing the A-rig, jerkbaits, crankbaits and jigs mostly. The crappie anglers are still hitting the deeper water in the creeks with good success. Best areas are Yellow Creek, Dry Creek and Indian Creek. The best water depths were 12 - 20 ft with crappie minnows but jigs may work just as well. Some anglers are choosing to drift/troll while others are opting for more a vertical presentation around any cover available. Like the bass, the crappie are also keying in on the schools of shad, so if you can find some deeper schools of shad, the crappie shouldn't be far off. The catfish bite is fair to good in some areas right now and may pick up due to increased current levels. The jug and rod-n-reel crowd are having very good success on cut/whole shad and skipjack herring.
