Covering:  Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley

"In my last few guide trips we have continued to catch some big fish but the numbers have went down which is typical come mid July."

Scott Patton

Date:  July 28, 2016
Covering:  Kentucky Lake from Blood River to New Johnsonville

"The fish have been spread out more which is typical for summer bass. I have been catching them anywhere from 12 to 18 foot depending on the day and time of day."

Dave Stewart

Covering:  Kentucky Lake north of Paris Landing; Lake Barkley north of state line

"We have some nice fish but the numbers are down and the ledge bite is slow and scattered."

Steve McCadams

Covering:  Kentucky Lake from Paris Landing to New Johnsonville

"Yes it’s mid-summer but does the heat and humidity have to be so dominating to the Kentucky Lake fishing scene?"

Rich Bay

Covering:  Kentucky Lake & Lake Barkley north of US 68

"The summer ledge pattern has taken ahold on Kentucky Lake. Those that the toon has caught were while pulling crankbaits or tossing a Steel Shad bladebait and Ken’s hybrid inline spinners for whitebass."

Brandon Hunter

"Summer is here and the fishing is heating up! The bass are finally starting to make way to their summer haunts."

Randy Kuhens

Date:  June 14, 2016
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."

Kirk Weber

Date:  June 9, 2016
Covering:  Kentucky Lake from Kentucky Dam to Paris Landing

"June is historically one of the best, if not "The Best" month for catching good numbers of quality-size Bass on KY Lake."

Covering:  Sonar tips by Randy Kuhens for Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley

“'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

Date: April 14, 2016
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."

These geese float gracefully on a warm autumn day. Honker Lake was actually named for the number of Giant and Interior Canadian geese it attracts.
