Kentucky Lake Fishing Report for:
November 14th, 2003
weather has entered the picture for anglers this week for Kentucky Lake
anglers. However, despite a cold front and some brisk north winds, the
weatherman indicates moderate temperatures are on the horizon so
conditions should return to normal early next week.
lake levels in the Paris Landing area continue to hold near the low
winter pool stage. Elevation was in the 354.4 range this week. Similar
readings were reported for both New Johnsonville and Kentucky Dam.
Watercolor remains relatively clear, although some stain was present in
shallow bays and near points this week as wind had stirred up some
sediments, along with a slight runoff from light rains.
temperatures have cooled some from last week. Temperatures were in the
58 to 62 degree range and will likely cool even more over the weekend.
continue to bite and action has been good for anglers working the
midrange depths of 7 to 11 feet. Stakebeds , brushpiles, and stumprows
have been producing fish this week in shallow areas.
tipped with minnows have been working well. Popular colors continue to
be skirts with some chartreuse variations, along with dull colors such
as dark gray and red, blue and white, and some clear with sparkle
for action to also improve on the deeper main lake ledges in the weeks
ahead. As surface temperatures cool the crappie will fall back to deeper
water where shad are more abundant.
anglers are still finding fish relating to rock and gravel banks.
Tossing crankbaits and jigs have produced some smallmouth and Kentucky
spotted bass this week, along with some largemouth taking spinner baits
around wooded cover.
gravel banks and roadbeds are good choices during low water periods,
along with bridge piers and boathouses with docks.
