    Pickwick Lake Elevation 414
    Water Temp. 65
    BASS
    You can find bass in shallow and deep water right now. For the most part I am catching most of the fish I catch shallow, they are a little easier to target in shallow water. The deep water areas change in location more than the shallow areas. To start off the day I am using a small Strike King series 3 crankbait on main lake points, I will also cover the main lake bank and the bank in the cove approx 100' each way of these points with the crankbait if it is a productive point. During the day I am still focusing on shallow water, most of the fish I have caught lately have came out of 1-5' of water. Red eye Shad and soft plastic lures have accounted for the biggest number of fish I have caught in shallow water. As far as fishing below the dam for bass, I have caught several on live minnows drifting along the banks. If I had to chose one bait, Strike King Series 3 Crank Baits have accounted for most bass above an below the dam.
    White Bass
    White bass are still easy to catch, if you are after numbers now is the time to go fish for white bass. I catch a lot of white grubs on 1/4oz jigs close to the bank. I also catch a lot on small crankbaits. White or crawfish colored crankbaits work well.

    Stripers
    Big stripers are starting to show up. In the morning and late afternoon you can catch them shallow by fishing a plastic bait shallow around the boils. I am catching most of the big fish drifting downstream with a big crankbait such as a Strike King Series 6XD.
    Sauger
    Sauger can still be caught by trolling crankbaits. The ideal crankbait for me has been a Strike King Series 3 in bright colors.

    Catfish
    You can still catch catfish in shallow water right now. To catch these shallow catfish I usually fish with a live worm and float in 3-6' of water.

    Some Things you Must Try

    One of the conditions we see on a regular basis in the fall is clear water although this year has been more rain, the reason being is generally we do not see a lot of rain and the thickness of the hydrilla causes the water to clear as it acts as a filter and cleans the water.... read more
