North Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake Fishing Reports
Dave Stewart's Fishing Report
" I was on the water yesterday and I can honestly say that the bass were more actively feeding than I have seen them in the past couple of months.  There were large schools of threadfin shad in the shallows in the creeks and bays the bass there were actively feeding early yesterday.  We also found bass feeding on schools of threadfin on the rocky lead in channel banks and points in the creeks and bays.  Certainly I can finally say that the fall transition is on.  The extended forecast is calling for more below normal temperatures and no doubt the water temperatures are going to continue to fall.  We took bass yesterday on top water lures in the shallows and on finesse baits (shaky head, ned rigs and finesse jigs) on the lead in banks.       ."

Shell Diver's Guide Service Report
" All though the number of shad present in shallow and deep water is good the shad at the north end of the lake are not balled up all day long with bass behind every ball as they were two years ago. They get balled up as a defense mechanism when bass are pursuing them and since we are short on bass I am not seeing the balls of shad roaming in the shallows even though there are thousands/millions of shad in shallow water.

Kick'n Bass Guide Service Report
"
Crappies have been scattered this summer, but they seem to be schooling up and that means all my crankbait gear gets put back on the toon. I’ll be posting another report in about 10 days with more of the crappie bite info. We have caught quite a few fishing for whitebass on the ledges this summer... . .  "

Big Kahuna's Fishing Report
" As far as fishing goes we have still been chasing the White and Yellow Bass. Some days we have had some excellent action on the Whites and then on your trip the next day you would think they do not exist. On the days we cannot find the Whites we move around and try to find the Yellow Bass. Some days are better than others, but we have been fortunate to make some pretty decent catches of fish for our people. We usually are able to catch a few catfish mixed in , and an occasional Bass..

Finally, it’s trying to turn Fall, it’s something I have been waiting for and I’m sure a lot of you guys have been also. I’m starting to catch a few more good fish on topwater, my favorite of course is the Lucky Craft Gun Fish and Sammy! But I always have a buzzbait and other style top water nearby. You have to let the fish tell you what they want. Normally shad patterns are what the bass are looking for here on Kentucky lake.
