"Things are really getting good here on the south end of Kentucky Lake. The cool fall weather has dropped the water temperatures back down to bring the bait and bass into the shallows."

Covering:  Kentucky Lake from Kentucky Dam to Paris Landing

"Finding good action on Bass, White Bass, Bluegill, Cats, and Crappie. The Crappie bite has been exceptionally good lately!"

"The results that I saw of tournaments last weekend pretty much reflected that with a few nice bags coming in but a lot of folks struggling to put keepers in the boat."

"Practically everyone had an attitude adjustment this week. Anglers and hunters had more pep in their step thanks to an overdue cool snap that finally made it feel like fall had arrived."

Covering:  Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley

"I have had some really good guide trips since my last report. The fishing is the same as in my last report you can catch them shallow or deep bass are scattered and the bigger fish are coming off of drop offs."

Covering:  Kentucky Lake & Lake Barkley north of US 68

"This has been the best fishing week for crappies since last spring! The crappies and other fish are moving towards their autumn places and the bigger fish are moving in."

"In the coming weeks with the cooler nighttime temperatures, you can bet the water temps will start to fall and put the fish in some active patterns. Fall fishing is just right around the corner."

Randy Kuhens

Covering:  North Kentucky Lake and North Lake Barkley

"This is the time the white bass fishing is really good. On days when the current is present on the main lake we are catching limits in 1 to 2 hours early in the morning on rooster tails and slab spoons on or near river channel points."

“'We caught them good here yesterday but they’re not here now I don’t know where they’ve gone?'  Sound familiar?  You bet it does! This scenario has happened to us all."

John Morgan

Covering:  Kentucky Lake from US 68 to Big Sandy River

"Warm nights and days in the 70's for the next 4 to 5 days should make for a great spawn."
