WARM DAYS AHEAD
Kentucky Lakeís fishing scene hasnít had much to report lately as most
anglers have surrendered to winter conditions. Fishermen have been
postponing their trips and waiting the return of mild weather before
venturing out on a cold and windy lake.
It appears their wait is over as unseasonably warm weather is in the
forecast as the weekend approaches. A cold front is in the forecast for
the middle of next week but before it arrives temps in the low to mid
60ís will hang around.
That should really stir up anglers who have been cooped up with cabin
fever. Odds are bass and crappie anglers will be out in force if the
wind cooperates. Often times these quick winter warm ups come at the
price of strong south winds however.
Lake levels have settled down and have been a few inches above normal
winter pool with readings in the 355.2 range this week. Surface temps
have been in the 40 degree range but will warm some throughout the
Water color is in pretty good shape throughout the reservoir. A few
crappie anglers braving the elements lately reported tough fishing.
Perhaps the warm up will help things get going.
