Kentucky Lake Fishing Report for:
March 31st, 2009
Kentucky Lake has been rising fast the last few days and is expected to
crest on Wednesday with elevation reaching the 359 mark of summer pool,
which is about 4 feet above normal. TVA is projected a rapid drop
beginning Wednesday of some 6 inches each day.
Surface temps are in the 58 to 61 degree range.
Right now crappie are quite scattered due to the quick changes taking
place the last few days. The most consistent areas have been the upper
Big Sandy near New Hope and south of the power lines near Trace and
Popular Creeks, along with the Elkhorn basin west of Sulphur Well
Some dingy water is present near New Hope while West Sandy is clear.
Here in the Paris Landing area water is clear and fish are scattered.
Spawning is likely a week away but action may improve for crappie
anglers in the next few days and the falling lake levels might return
fish to a structure oriented mood as right now they are suspended and on
Bass are moving up to shallow areas quickly and some fish are now in
dead grass and bushes along the shoreline that was literally dry ground
three days ago!.
