Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 413.26 ft. Surface water temps are in the upper 80's. The bass report is starting to sound like a broken record. It took 24 pounds to win the couples trail tournament this past Sunday. Some anglers are catching good numbers while others aren't getting a lot of bites. Good electronics are almost a must right now. Texas/Carolina-rigged plastics, deep diving cranks, swimbaits, and heavy jigs are still the best bets out on the humps and ledges. A flutter spoon might also get a bite. Some quality smallmouth continue to be taken after dark on big, dark worms, jigs and black spinnerbaits in Yellow Creek. The catfish reports continue to be fair to good. Most catfish anglers are now hitting the gravel bars and the river ledges. The old river channel around Bear Creek is popular right now. Best depths will be 15 to 25 feet deep, with deeper water in the river channel nearby. Nightcrawlers, liver, and cutbait are all catching catfish. Catfish anglers need to keep in mind that only one fish over 34 inches may be harvested since Pickwick is a shared waterbody with Alabama.
