North Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake Fishing Reports
Dave Stewart's Fishing Report
"Bass fishing continued to be slow last week as indicated in the results of the FLW BFL Wildcard tournament with most of the field having weighed only one fish or no fish in the two day tournament with only a few limits weighed in.  It only took an 8.5 lb average each day to qualify for next year's All American tournament.  The good news is that the water temperatures finally dropped into the 50's late last weekend and I have received a number of reports of schools of shad and bass starting to move into the shallows over the past few days on both the main lake flats and in the shallows in the creeks and bays.  This indicates the fall bite is finally getting started and we should start experiencing a more productive bite over the next few weeks.

Captain Kirk's Fishing Report

October went out like a lion and November came in like a lamb.  It's fall here on Kentucky Lake and the Crappie have been more cooperative.  Catching a wide variety of fish 10' to 25' deep by fishing small jigs and minnows around wood cover.

Kick'n Bass Guide Service Report
"

We have continued to pull crankbaits for crappie. We have caught a bunch of them. We have literally caught basically every fish that swims in Kentucky Lake the last few weeks…including about 10” longnose gar. Every day has seen a new color emerge as the crappie favorite, but pink and shad colors have been most consistent. Main lake has slowed but deep bays are going strong. As always, just put in the time and you will be rewarded.  "

Shell Diver's Guide Service Report
"The bass fishing has been good some days and tough on other days. For the most part the majority of fisherman are fishing shallow in the backs of creeks and bays, shallow points, and shallow main lake bars. I have had days where I catch some shallow and some deeper on drop offs. There really is not a depth limit on the deeper fish as I have caught them from 5 feet down to 22 feet. Last year during the fall the fishing was a lot better and very consistent.. .   . ".

Big Kahuna's Fishing Report
"As far as fishing is concerned things have been changing. Up until recently we were still looking for the White and Yellow Bass exclusively. Areas we were targeting were the old river channel, islands, and mouths of major creeks. Most days we were able to put together good catches on the Yellows, but the Whites were difficult for us to find in numbers. The last couple of trips I took I stuck to our brushpiles, and was able to catch some Crappie and found the Yellows to be in pretty good numbers. For what it is worth I am really expecting for the fall Crappie fishing on our lakes to be good. We had a great spring, and good numbers of fish in the lake . I released a lot of non keepers that should now be the legal size limit to keep.

Brandon Hunter's Fishing Report

"The lake has definitely been fishing tough for the last couple months. When the summer months of late July in to August get here, the fishing will usually get very tough on Kentucky and Barkley lakes. I am starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel with the cooler nights and cooler water temps. The cool nights will get those water temps back in the 70s and make those fish want to get back into those active feeding patterns during the day. From the first of September through the fall months you should start seeing more activity on the lake. Bait will start to migrate towards the flats and creeks, and the bass will be right behind them. Look for the fall patterns to start working any day now and more activity on the water overall. ""

Kentucky Lake Outdoor Adventures Guide Service Report
".  The largemouth bass or still very active and are aggressively attacking the lures.  We are still having a lot of luck on the sexy shad crank baits.  However, this week we are getting a lot of action on the crawfish colored rattletraps.  We are still finding most of our bass in the 10-15' depth range.
