North Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake Fishing Reports
Kick'n Bass Guide Service Report
"
I haven't been pulling cranks on any guide trips but have on some off days. ( I may have a fishing addiction)! Crappies have settled into their normal pattern on the main lake. Pulling 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 Arkie #3 Sexee Shad and any pink combination crankbaits but that can change day to day. Fishing the deeper bays over brush and stake-beds has produced some fish but the main concentrations of fish are in the main lake. Putting in the time to scan for fish and coming up with a pattern will get you on the fish. "

Shell Diver's Guide Service Report
"The best fishing right now is right before dark and after dark. I can be sitting on a good drop off and watch the shad move in right before dark and the bass come out of nowhere to feed on the shad. I have had some good trips where we finished the trip fishing the first two hours of dark and the fish moved in and we caught some big ones. . .   . ".

Dave Stewart's Fishing Report
" Largemouth are being taken on primary points on the main lake as well as on ledges on the main lake and in the mouths of creeks and bays. These fish are being taken on swim baits, spoons, Texas rigged large worms, drop shot rigs, shaky heads, Carolina rigged creature baits and jigs. Largemouth are being taken in the backs of the creeks and bays early and late in the day on topwater lures as they are feeding on schools of fry. Some Largemouth are also being taken near wood cover and around docks during the day on spinner baits, texas rigged creature baits, jigs and Senko type baits.

Big Kahuna's Fishing Report
"As far as the whites and yellows we have usually been able to put together some good catches for our customers.  As always some days are better than others, and you just do the best you can. We have had some good catches of the whites, but they have been inconsistent in my boat as of late, and over the last few days very hard for me to find. The Yellow Bass have been most consistent , and usually we have been able to produce what I would consider good catches.Be sure to check out the pictures along with the report on the Moors web page. We still are targeting the mouths of bays and major creeks and the old river channel. Our baits of choice as usual are Kens hybrid spinners and jigging spoons. We usually always pick up some catfish,, and an occasional bass when we are looking for these species.

Captain Kirk's Fishing Report
We're still catching some really nice Largemouth, Smallmouth, Crappie, Sauger, White Bass, Yellow Bass, and Catfish on offshore ledges.  The biggest change I've seen lately and will probably see for the next month is that there are now a lot more Yellow Bass and White Bass than Largemouths on the ledges.  This makes for some good frantic fish catching action at times.

Brandon Hunter's Fishing Report

"For the most part the majority of the bass population in the TN River System have spawned and the fish are making their way out to deep water. When the water temps hit the low 70’s a few fish will start showing up offshore. This time of year I will typically start looking at the mouths of the major spawning creeks. The bass will migrate from the shallows to the mouths of the creeks, it seems like overnight. They will typically get out on those creek channel drops that are close to that deeper water. Most of the fish I find this time of year will get out in that 20-25’ range when they pull out and kind of recoop from the spawn before they really pull up and start feeding for the summer. The big shad on the main lake will start showing up and those big bass are not far behind them. When the fish start showing up at the mouths of the creeks, it won’t be long before they are out on the main lake or the river ledges. General rule of thumb is you will typically find deeper ledges on the east side of the lake and shallower ledges on the west side of the lake. No one side is better than another, with plenty of offshore structure on both sides of the lake. ""
