Pineview Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Fishing is improving. Anglers report good fishing for crappie using small jigs in chartreuse, pink, red and white. Anglers fishing from boats in 25 feet of water reported the best fishing. The crappie were at depths around 10 to 15 feet. Crappie fishing was best northeast of Cemetery Point, but fishing was slow near Anderson Cove. Anglers are catching a few smallmouth bass in the shallower parts of the bays using chartreuse curly tailed jigs. A few anglers have caught tiger muskies too. One angler was targeting bass when he caught a 15-inch tiger muskie and a larger muskie that got off the jig when it was about 20 feet from shore.
