Dave Stewart

Date:  March 27, 2015
Covering:  Kentucky Lake north of Paris Landing; Lake Barkley north of state line

"On warmer days some shad and bass are moving shallow on the flats in the creeks and bays during the warmer part of the day."

Randy Kuhens

Date:  March 27, 2015
Covering:  Kentucky Lake & Lake Barkley north of US 68

"Our efforts have been hampered somewhat by the dirty and rising water but you can just tell that Crappie fishing is just ready to bust wide open."

John Morgan

Date:  March 26, 2015
Covering:  Kentucky Lake from US 68 to Big Sandy River

"I have been traveling to Big Sandy some days and have had some great catches there. Over the next few days I plan to stay here in Blood River. I think our fish will start to move up in the next few days."

Steve McCadams

Date:  March 26, 2015
Covering:  Kentucky Lake from Paris Landing to New Johnsonville

"Fish have really been on the move this week in response to rising surface temperatures. Crappie anglers have been using a variety of methods across Kentucky Lake this week and in a variety of depths and locations."

Scott Patton

Date:  March 26, 2015
Covering:  Kentucky Lake from Blood River to New Johnsonville

"Fishing has really been good; I have caught so many four to eight pound bass the past week. The fish have been moving but I’ve been able to stay on them."

Randy Kuhens

Date:  March 25, 2015
Covering:  North Kentucky Lake and North Lake Barkley

We are still catching most of the crappie out in deeper brush piles on live minnows and jigs in 12 to 15 feet of water.

Kirk Weber

Date: March 13, 2015
Covering:  Kentucky Lake from Jonathan Creek to Paris Landing

"This is what I think of early March fishing on Kentucky Lake...Extra large Crappie and plenty of them and a good bass bite with a few extra large fish.  This is what we experienced yesterday!"
