Pineview Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: One of our biologists fished Pineview for about four hours on Tuesday morning. The water temperature started out at 72°F and was nearly 79°F by 10:30 a.m. He didn't see any tiger muskies, but fishing was good for smallmouth bass around 15 inches and two pounds. He also got a good number of small, seven- to eight-inch crappies in weedy areas, six to seven feet deep. All fish were caught on jigs. The water is quite clear, except for shorelines disturbed by boat wakes.
