Kentucky Lake Crappie Fishing
ANGLING HOLDS UP
Winter anglers are holding on to a decent bite in the crappie
department. Reports continue to come in from successful fishermen
catching them in a variety of depths.
Some decent stringers have come from midrange stakebeds in main lake
areas lately around depths of 9 to 12 feet. At the same time deep sides
of drop-offs are still paying dividends too.
Boats working the 18 to 24 foot depth range with both live minnows and
jigs are finding enough fish to keep them going and a few have even
reported landing limits.
It appears some cooler weather will escort the new year in so anglers
may find the going more challenging if north winds and cooler temps
Lake levels this week have risen a few inches in the aftermath of heavy
rains and thunderstorms that drenched the region earlier this week.
Projections for the weekend show Kentucky Lake levels will be in the
355.5 range at New Johnsonville and slightly higher at Kentucky Dam
where the elevation will be in the 355.6 range. Water color has a little
stain this week and surface temperatures are hanging around the 39 to 42
