Conditions : Pickwick Lake: ?Pickwick Lake elevation: 410.07 ft. and slightly rising at the time of this report. The water temps are in the mid to upper 50’s for much of the lake while some backwater areas may be in the low to mid 60s. The bass bite is good for numbers for just about everybody with some folks finding more quality fish. Target transitional areas leading to spawning areas in the major tributaries like Yellow and Bear Creeks. Most of the fish are making the move shallow for the spawn. Most anglers are using the traditional power techniques like spinnerbaits, square billed crankbaits, jigs and T-rigged plastics to catch their fish. Crappie fishing is starting to heat up right now as well as multitudes of anglers are hitting the waters. Mills Creek, Goat Island and Yellow Creek are the hot spots right now as anglers are drifting/trolling jigs and also vertical jigging for suspended fish they found using their electronics. Anglers are targeting depths as shallow as 4ft down to almost 20ft of water with both jigs and minnows. Casting or bouncing jigs along the bottom has been the most popular technique this past week. This is also a great time of year to catch really big catfish on a rod-and-reel. Target deep channel holes on the main lake with cut bait or whole skipjack, and hold on. Sauger fishing may still prove to be tricky as 80,000+ cfs is still coming thru Pickwick dam.
