The recent work on Pickwick Dam has the water level lower than usual,but this week's heavy rains has temporarily alleviated that problem. The current has beenkicking up in the afternoons, but again, the rains have solved that problem with a constantheavy flow this week. The result this week should be awesome fishing from one end of thelake to the other. It has been decent at times lately, as my clients have been catchingsome big fish, both smallmouth and largemouth, but the action has been sporadic. Earlymorning and midafternoon have been the best times. The cooling nights will also drop thewater temps, another positive factor for fishing. The next few weeks will be the best fishingof the fall on Pickwick!

This was my first trip to Pickwick and definitely won't be my last. It is one of the prettiest places that I have fished and offered so many different types of fishing. I could target grass, rock, bluff walls, humps, or ledges deep or shallow. The fishing was only ok though. I caught a lot fish but most were just under the size limit. Most of my fish were caught either in the grass or on the edge of the grass with a senko style worm fished on a weightless texas rig. I also caught a few fish on jigs and small crankbaits fished along bluff walls. Most of my fishing was done in Dry Creek, Panther Creek, Indian creek, and around State Line Island. The shad had started moving into the creeks and there were a lot of schooling fish but most that I saw were small. It seemed that the larger fish had not moved into the creeks yet. Although fishing was tough and I didn't catch a smallmouth I still had a lot of fun and learned a lot about the lake from Indian Creek to the Pickwick dam. We stayed at J.P. Coleman state park. Decent cabins with a good boat ramp and plenty of boat and truck parking. This is definitely a place I will fish again and if you get the opportunity you should too.
