Pickwick Lake, MS

Bass are fishing enthusiasts' favorites at Pickwick Lake, a 43,000-acre reservoir located in the extreme northeast corner of Mississippi. At full pool nearly 500 miles of shoreline in MS, AL and TN await anglers in pursuit of a wide variety of fish species. Bass, crappie, catfish, walleye, stripers, hybrid striped bass, sauger, spotted bass and sunfish all reside here. There is minimal access to shoreline for fishing from the bank, but canoes, kayaks, pontoons, pleasure boats and all types of fishing boats can get you to areas holding fish. Rocky banks, boat docks, brush and creek channels are good places to start. There are plenty of choices for camping, boat rentals, lodging, restaurants, fishing gear and other local services, many available at the marinas on the lake.
