Anglers put another log on the fire this week and chose to defer their outings until better weather returns. They really canít complain as most of December was nice and offered great fishing weather as days were mild and winds were calm.

The year will wind down on a cold note and not many fishermen have braved the elements this week. Cold north winds and frigid temps have not appealed to crappie and bass fishermen as of late.

It appears the weatherman has more cool weather in the forecast so that will curtail winter fishing for the next several days but not to worry; mild weather will sneak back in soon.

Surface temperatures this week started out in the 46 to 47 degree range but were falling fast as the cold nights arrived.

Lake levels really surged last weekend and earlier this week as heavy rains to our south sent a lot of water though the system. The reservoir jumped about two feet in a short time and at midweek was two and a half feet above winter pool.

Elevation is projected by TVA to be in the 356.2 range at Kentucky Dam and a bit higher upstream at New Johnsonville where readings will be in the 357.1 range. The lake crested at midweek but is slow to recede as it has fallen a few short inches the last day or two and more rain is expected later this weekend.

Water color was a bit dingy in the main Tennessee River and up Big Sandy but pretty clear at the mouth of Big Sandy.

Last week some decent stringers of crappie were taken in depths of 18 to 20 feet on the main lake drop-offs. Since then, not many people have been out there as itís a bit too cold and windy.

Bass fishermen had really been tearing up the water the last few weeks but that has slowed too due to the weather change.
