Kentucky Lake Fishing Report for:
January 12th, 2007
Kentucky Lake anglers had some good fishing conditions last weekend
and several decent catches of both crappie and sauger were reported.
Water levels have really been fluctuating this week as the reservoir
jumped up dramatically early t his week and crested at 357.5 in the
Paris Landing area, which is over three above normal for this time of
By midweek lake levels were falling and a lot of current was
present. Lake levels are expected to fall going into the weekend but
watch for that to change early next week if predicted rainfall arrives.
Watercolor has had some stain in it this week and surface
temperatures have stayed in the 47-49 degree range. A couple of cool
nights pulled a few degrees away from that as well.
Crappie were hitting good in 10 to 12 foot structure late last week.
Several decent stringers were taken as anglers worked brushpiles and
stakebeds with jigs.
Sauger catches improved lately too as the increased current likely
contributed to that.
Some windy and wet days have now arrived so anglers may get their
spirits dampened. Warm weather is expected to linger through Sunday but
a cold front is knocking at the door and may curtail fishing activity
next week as winter makes its presence known.
