Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 413.69 ft. and holding at the time of this report. TVA is running very little current if any right now. The bass bite is good for some and better for others. More fish are moving toward the ledges and humps. While fish are being caught fairly early up shallow, the majority of the quality bites are coming off shore. Anglers are using jigs, spoons, swimbaits, spinnerbaits, and T-rigged worms mostly. The crappie bite is still fair to good. Some quality fish are still being caught. Mills Creek, Goat Island and Yellow Creek continue to be hot spots as anglers are drifting/trolling jigs and casting jigs/roadrunners for suspended fish they found using their electronics. Anglers are targeting 12 - 18 ft of water. The catfish bite continues to be good as the spawn is right around the corner. With the full moon this upcoming weekend, look for not only catfish to start spawning but the bluegill as well. Look for shallow gravel and sand flats in the backs of pockets to start loading up with bluegill. Reports of fish in and around hand grabbling boxes are starting to come in as well.
