North Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake Fishing Reports
Shell Diver's Guide Service Report
"Bass fishing is tough right now. I heard that in a decent size tournament last weekend only one limit was brought to the scales which won the event with a weight of a little over 12lbs. With current conditions I can usually get some big fish and am still getting a limit some days that is heavy. During night fishing trips I have taken some heavy limits sometimes getting a couple limits of keeper size fish. During any given year and all four seasons bass will do most of their feeding after dark. ".

Dave Stewart's Fishing Report
" Current Conditions:  There really has not been any real change in the fishing conditions here since my last report.  The early morning shallow water bite where some bass are feeding on schools of fry continues to be the most productive pattern for putting some keeper sized and larger bass in the boat.  The numbers have not been great but we have not had any mornings this week without a few keepers sized bass in the boat as well as some smaller fish.  Some days are better than others of course.  We had one morning this week with a limit of bass anchored by a 7lb and a 5lb fish.  The next morning we only had 2 keepers with the largest at 3lbs and a few smaller fish.  We fished the ledges this week also but with the same results we have been having and that is a slow and scattered bite with only a few fish.    ."

Kick'n Bass Guide Service Report
"
Crappies have settled into their normal pattern on the main lake. Pulling Jenko and Arkie crankbaits has produced some nice fish. I have been varying my trolling speed between 1.6 and 2.1 mph. Seems the best colors this week have been the Jenko Sick and Pink Tiger crankbaits but that can change day to day. Fishing the deeper bays over brush and stake-beds has produced some bites but the main concentrations of fish are in the main lake. Put in the time to scan and come up with a pattern will get you on the fish.. . .  "

Big Kahuna's Fishing Report
" As in fishing some days are better than others, but we generally have been able to get some tugs, and send people home with some fish. A few days we have been able to find the fish wadded up and camp out on them, but other days we had to really scramble around and make a lot of moves for a few bites here and there to get them to add up. That is why we spend a lot of hours on the water constantly searching for new spots holding fish. They are not always in the same spots, and you cannot always rely on yesterdays well producing water.

South Lake Barkley & Kentucky Lake / Blood River Area Fishing Reports
Scott Patton Fishing Report

The bass fishing on Kentucky Lake has been getting better each day. I’m seeing more fish and bait returning to their summer ledge areas. With all the high water we had a couple weeks ago and strong current its forced the bait and bass to seek lesser current areas which was in the creeks and back water areas.
