    I have fished Wilson and now am looking to fish Pickwick. Riverfront Park is the only thing I am familiar with on Pickwick as well.
    How is the navigation in Pickwick? I have heard it can be treaturous due to rocks and such. Any good ideas as which end of Pickwick is better, Eastern or Western side? PM's are welcome as well
    Thanks

    I have fished Pickwick lake a few times although not on a regular basis. Each time it's been on the lower end near pickwick dam. Most of the lake there is pretty deep. Although a lake map would probably be very helpful.

    From the RR bridge up be careful. Theres lots of big rocks below the dam. When there not generating you can see a lot of them.
    If you will download Google earth. You can scout the waters with the PC. I know it did show a lot of the rocks there below the dam. But then again they may have the detail cut back again.

    No I just hunt with him.

    You will have to do for a fishing partner cause he cant back the boat in too good.
