Kentucky Lake Fishing Report for:
January 20th, 2006
From the winter fishing scene comes word of a few successful crappie
anglers who have taken advantage of the mild weather throughout most of
Sauger fishermen are finding a few fish around Paris Landing and
further south to Danville bridge and New Johnsonville. Most anglers
report several small fish still in the creek but a few decent ones are
mixed in there with them.
Crappie anglers are still finding fish in midrange stakebeds and
brushpiles. Depths of 10 feet have been productive in West Sandy and
down toward Sulphur Well Island and Mansard Island area.
Further north near the mouth of Big Sandy most of the anglers are
finding fish deeper along main lake ledges. Depths of 18 to 20 feet have
given up some decent stringers from the deep stumps and brush.
While a few windy days have curtailed activity for anglers, there
have also been some days with light winds and moderate temperatures that
stirred up the fishing pox for area anglers.
Lake levels have been rising slowly the last few days after staying
near the winter pool mark for several weeks. TVA indicated lake levels
would be in the 355.6 range this weekend in the Paris Landing area,
which is several inches higher than last week at this time.
Surface temperatures were in the upper 40’s before Tuesday’s cold
front and snow descended. Somewhat mild temperatures are in the forecast
so surface temperatures will likely rebound the next few days after
falling several degrees Tuesday night.
Overall, winter fishing has been pretty good.
