Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake Fishing Report

June 9, 2011

Water Temp: 82-86 degrees

Lake Level: 358.90

One word describes the last week of fishing HOT! The summer pattern is in effect. With the hot temperatures the fish have begun to show up on main lake ledges in big numbers and sizes. Unfortunately the lack of current has fish sprread out instead of schooled up tightly. The TVA pulls water from 11am to 5pm, approximately. Fishing is better in the afternoon when there is some current. Most productive areas that I have found have been shell beds in 6-18 ft of water. The larger fish on the north end of the lake have come in deeper water, where as larger fish down south toward New Johnsonville have been caught in 6-12 ft of water. Some of the more productive baits: the big worm is back, plum, watermelon and green pumpkin colors have been the best, deep diving cranks baits, football head jigs, and carolina rig have all been productive. For those of you who venture out on the water in the coming days make sure to pack plenty of water and ice. Stay hydrated.
