Rodney Hairgrove's Fishing Report

For June 14, 2016

Report for the Northern Portion of Kentucky Lake & Lake Barkley

From the Deck of Rodney Hairgrove...


Bluegill fishing is really starting to slow down. The spawn is over; however, some are still being caught around spawning beds in 2-3 feet of water in the backs of the bays and the first points out using bluegill bugs on a 1/16th oz jig head tipped with a wax worm or spike. Cast alone or under a small spring bobber.


Crappie is slowing but some catches this week being caught in 15-20 foot of water on minnows in brush piles on or near the main lake.


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. On days when no current is present the white bass fishing is really tough; however you can still catch good numbers of yellow stripes on spoons.


The Largemouth fishing is really getting good as the water temperatures rise. Good numbers of largemouth coming on Strike King 6XD in Sexy Shad, 10 inch Zoom Ole’ Monster in Plum, and a Carolina Rig 3/4oz with a baby brush hog in Watermelon Red. You can also catch good numbers on a Swim Bait on main lake ledges in 10-20 foot of water. Some bay drops are still holding fish as well.

Call 270-362-0147 and book your largemouth or white bass trip today!

Hope to see you on the lake soon! Good Fishing!
