May Pickwick Wilson Lake Catfishing Report

Catfish on Wilson turned on this week. Caught 21 tuesday afternoon and 41 thursday afternoon. Fish caught on cut skipjack about quarter size. Fish were suspended 20 -30 feet deep in 40-55 feet of water along bluff lines on the south side of the lake. Caught a few bigger fish in 40- 45 feet of water in the mouth of McKernan Creek. These fish were on the bottom.  Smaller fish are starting to move in the sloughs and pockets out of the main lake. Channel catfish are bedding in 3-10 feet of water along bluffs and steep dropping pea gravel banks. For these fish night crawlers, shrimp, or hot dogs are best baits. Contact Me

April Pickwick Wilson Lake Catfishing Report

The catfish bite is starting to pick up on Wilson on Pickwick lakes. Water temperatures have risen quickly this spring and the catfish are moving shallow earlier than usual. On Wilson target channel catfish along bluff walls and chunk rock in 3 to 10 feet of water. Shrimp, nightcrawlers, and cheese baits work best. For blue cats fish ledges and humps in 20 to 40 feet of water concentrating on the contours. Smaller fish are loading up on gravel bars and secondary points inside sloughs. Cut skipjack, shad, and shrimp all work well. Below Wilson Dam some cats are starting to make their way to the dam. Large concentrations of fish have not arrived, but some good fish are being caught. Best locations are directly below the dam in eddy waters off tailrace and bridge pilings downstream of the dam. The mouths of Dry and Little Bear Creeks will be holding fish in about 8 to 10 feet of water. Would you like a trip? Contact Me
