Kentucky Lake Fishing Report for:
December 21st, 2007
Fishing has been holding up well for local anglers who can pick
their days and dodge the wind and inclimate weather.
Sauger have been hitting pretty good on the Tennessee River with the
most action coming from the Paris Landing bridge and further south to
Danville bridge as well as down at the mouth of Duck River.
Crappie are hitting good as the deep water patterns are holding up
well. Most of the fish are coming from main lake ledges in the 18 to 23
foot zones where anglers are tightlining jigs and minnows around the
deep sides of drop-offs.
This winter fishing thing is going good.
Surface temperatures have been in the 48 to 52 degree range this
Lake levels had risen some three and a half feet above winter pool
in the aftermath of last week’s heavy rain but TVA is drawing the
reservoir back down each day.
Lake levels going into the weekend will be in the 356.1 range at New
Johnsonville and 356.3 at Kentucky Dam. The reservoir has been falling
five to six inches each day since Monday’s crest.
