I have only fished below Wilson a couple of times, so I can't help much. What I can tell you is that you need to be VERY careful, there is lots of dangerous structure in that portion of the river. This is one of the primary reasons why Pickwick is such a productive smallmouth fishery. If at all possible, you really need to go a few times with someone who knows the river. Get in touch with our BR member, electrikal, and see if you guys can hook-up for a day.

here's a lil bit to wet your whistle. ;D

My folks live on Wilson (bluewater) and their neighbor caught these smallies not too long ago down on Pickwick. I guess you guys got a bunch of rain down there recently, so they were runnin water out of wilson dam a whole bunch. that was right at the time these fella's caught em.

on a side note...any of you guys go to the hearing last night trying to squash the sewage treatment plant for Killen?

I'm not sure if they kept and cleaned them or not.  Generally speaking Joe (the guy holding the two big ones...7 pounders) is a catch and release guy I think.  I dunno about the other guy, though.

yeah, mabye so...but still...this is my dad's neighbor, not me, so I can't really say one way or the other.

Just thought you would like to see some good smallies from Pickwick.

Scott C,

No, I deleted the picture.

I don't EVER want to see a picture like that.

Keeping big smallmouth makes me want to puke.

Thanks RW, I cried out in pain when I saw those beauties knowing I'll never have the opportunity to catch em.

Caught my first 7lb smallmouth when I was a kid, there just below Wilson dam fishing with my uncle, Jab Buttrum. "1960" The river was full of 'em. Even caught some LM's during that trip. Those were the day's. Not sure if that part of the river is still that good but it doesn't have a chance if folks don't have a little common sense and conserve the resource. Mark Rose is one of our Pro's and he said it is still a very healthy river system. He won The FLW on Pickwick in 07. He used a green pumpkin football jig and pinched a green pumpkin Rage Tail Craw for a trailer. Dragging it over shell beds. Good luck to you and I hope you get into 'em. Let us know how you do.

That is exactly where a lot of guys think the next World Record will be caught!
