Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 413.31 ft. and relatively holding at the time of this report. Surface water temps are in the high 80's. The bass bite has slowed a bit, but a few folks are still catching some quality fish. It took a little over 20 pounds to win a local team tournament there this past weekend. For the most part, a lot of folks are struggling to catch keeper fish during the day. Texas/Carolina-rigged plastics, deep diving cranks, swimbaits, and heavy jigs are still the best bets out on the humps and ledges. Keep a zara spook or something of the sort handy as some bass shoot start schooling and chasing shad before long. Some anglers are opting to target the hydrilla beds scattered around the lake. Bites have been a bit spotty there, but a few fish are coming on T-rigged worms, spinnerbaits, and weedless swimbaits. We are still getting some decent catfish reports. Most catfish anglers are targeting the gravel bars and the river ledges in some of the same waters as the bass. Nightcrawlers, liver, and cutbait are all catching catfish. Another option would be strawberry and cherry koolaid flavored chicken.
