A favorite for local and national bass tournaments, Pickwick Lake is a 43,000-acre lake on the southern border of Tennessee. Pickwick annually makes the Bassmaster Top 100 bass lakes in the USA. Largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass are the featured species here. Current plays a major role in locating bass here. When there is current, look for fish out on the main lake. In times of no current the fish move into the coves. When the fish are shallow, areas with vegetation can be very productive. In addition to bass, the lake contains significant numbers of crappie, catfish, walleye, sauger, striped bass, white bass, sunfish and other species. There are several marinas on the lake and plenty of places to launch pleasure and fishing boats. Kayaks and canoes can be launched from numerous places around the lake.
