Kentucky Lake Fishing Report

 
 
Hello to all of our fishing friends and Kentucky Lake lovers! Don, Eric, and myself hope that October has treated each of you well. A big thanks goes out to each of you that fished with us since our last report or at anytime during the year.

As far as lake conditions Kentucky Lake was reported as being 354.18 and stable today. Barkley was listed at 354.30 and forecast to be on the rise. Kentucky is supposed to be at 354.15 tomorrow and 354.12 on Friday. Each dam was giving the temperatures to be at 70 degrees. Both lakes are extremely low so use caution when navigating. Stay within the channel markers and if you do not know where you are going idle. Today I found temperatures in some bays to range between 65 and 67 degrees.


As far as the weather is concerned it looks as if we are in for temperatures to be in the mid to upper 70's with some days getting into the lower 80's before a cooling trend coming late next week with some 60 degree temperatures. The winds look to be very fishable on most days with very little or no chance of rain which we need badly.


In regards to fishing what can I say other that it has been very good. As always some days are better than others, but we have had some of the best days this past month catching Crappie that I have had in some time. Be sure to check out some of our pictures on the report as well as the Moors Facebook page.

All of our crappie are coming on vertically fished minnows and jigs around wood cover anywhere from 8 to 20 or more feet. We have caught fish both on the main lake and inside bays. While fishing the beds that we have worked hard to strategically sink we are also catching a lot of yellow bass and some very good sized ones.

We are also still specifically targeting Yellow and White Bass and the bite most days has been really good with some of the biggest fish we have seen this year. The Whites are not as concentrated as they were for us but we are usually able to find a few in the mix. We are still looking for these species around the river channels and mouths of major bays and creeks. Jigging spoons and inline spinners seem to be what has worked the best for us.



   I also spent about an hour on one of my trips specifically catfishing and caught some nice blues in about 40 foot of water on shrimp. This is another option to explore if one would like to pursue it.

   If anyone out there would like to get on the water, I think now is a perfect time. The fish have been biting and the weather looks like it is going to remain nice so give one of us a call. Don's cell is 270-559-1366 and mine is 270-331-3519. One of the three of us will work hard to find something to tug on your line and take home to the skillet.

   For anyone that has not visited the Moor's Resort now is the time whether you fish or not. The trees are beginning to take on their lovely fall colors and the weather is pleasant. Today, I saw two different Bald Eagles and we have a lot of Pelicans here on the lake presently. Moor's and the entire lake area has a lot to offer so don't miss out before winter sets in. Thanks again to all of our customers ! We enjoy the time we get to spend on the water and the friendships we have made with each and ever one of you.

Thanks and God Bless,
Chris, Don, and Eric
