Rodney Hairgrove's Fishing Report

For November 1, 2016

Report for the Northern Portion of Kentucky Lake & Lake Barkley

From the Deck of Rodney Hairgrove...

Whitebass and Yellow Stripes

Due to the unseasonably warm temperatures, whitebass and yellow stripes are still going strong.  You can still catch your limit on main lake points and river islands on jigging spoons, blade baits and rooster tails.


Top water fishing is just starting back in the bays and main lake points.  During the day, small crank baits and spinner baits on gravel and rock banks are producing nice fish.  Also we are catching schooling fish in the backs of bays on rattle traps, top waters and small swimbaits.


Crappie fishing is off to a great start.  Weather permitting (not too much wind), good numbers are coming in 15-20 foot of water in brushpiles on minnows, jigs and curly tails.  Looks like it is a going to be a great Fall for crappie this year.

Good Fishing!
