As a result, Pickwick Lake is a major vacation spot and magnet for recreational boaters and anglers with a lake emcompassing 47,500 acres and 490 miles of shoreline.

Annually ranked as one of the best bass lakes in the United States, largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass are a plentiful species inhabiting the lake. Other fish species include catfish, crappie, walleye, bluegill, sunfish, warmouth, striped bass, white bass, sunfish, paddlefish, and sauger.
