Captain Kirk's Fishing Report

September 22, 2017

Report for Kentucky Lake & Lake Barkley

Air Temperature: Low 67  High 91
Water Temperature: Low 76  High 80
Water Elevation:  355'  (Winter pool 354')
Water Clarity:  Clear with green stain)

With the bass and catfishing being a little slow, my clients and I have mostly been pan fishing.  We've been catching lots of Bluegill, a good number of Crappie, lots of Yellow Bass, a few Large and Smallmouth Bass, some White Bass, an occasional Sauger, Catfish, and Red Eared Sunfish. 

Fishing has been fun action with an occasional big fish.  We've been targeting stumps and brush from 6' to 25' deep water in the bays and on the main lake.  Catching fish by casting small spoons, jigs, swim baits, minnows, and crawlers.  I hear there is good action trolling crankbaits.

Just posted new pictures to my website, check 'em out on my Pictures webpage.
I still have a few good dates available in November. To book a trip just give me a call at 270-354-6017.

No camping excursion is complete with a serenade from the resident bullfrog. There are a vast variety of amphibians to be found throughout the Land Between The Lakes Area.
