Rodney Hairgrove's Fishing Report

For February 13, 2018

Report for the Northern Portion of Kentucky Lake & Lake Barkley

From the Deck of Rodney Hairgrove...

Spring is quickly approaching with lots of good fishing on the way!

Typically starting in Mid March, the Crappie Fishing gets started.  Kentucky Lake is one of the best fisheries in the country for crappie this time of the year and again in the Fall. 

Crappie typically lasts Mid March through most of April.  In Mid March, Crappie are being caught in the mouths of the bays and on the main lake. 

As the water starts to warm into the upper 50’s, the crappie will start their Spring Migration route back into the bays until they spawn.  After spawn they will start moving back into the mouths of the bays and the main lake again. 

Then starting in May, the Bluegill and Redear fishing is incredible typically through June. 

If you are looking for a great day of fishing on the lake, contact Rodney Hairgrove’s Guide Service at 270.362.0147 for Spring openings.  Crappie dates fill up quickly!  Look forward to seeing you on Kentucky Lake.
