With almost 500 miles of shoreline and over 43,00 acres of water, Pickwick Lake provides ample opportunity for excellent fishing year-round! Because Pickwick Lake is bordered by three states, a reciprocal agreement applies to anyone with a valid Sport Fishing License in any one of the bordering states. This allows those with a resident license to fish anywhere within the reciprocal area without purchasing a non-resident license in the other two states. These areas include all impounded water from the Pickwick Dam up to Tennessee River Mile 224.8, excluding Bear Creek and the portion of Yellow Creek above the Hwy. 25 bridge.
