Anglers have been slowly returning to Kentucky Lake as temperatures moderated the last week or so after the lionís share of November delivered pretty frigid conditions coupled with high winds.

Both crappie and bass anglers have eased back into action lately with some decent catches reported. And, it appears warmer temperatures will descend as the weekend approaches. The forecast calls for temps in the mid to upper 60ís on Sunday.

Lake levels this week havenít fluctuated much as the reservoir is still resting around its winter pool mark. Projections for the weekend will see lake levels in the 354.9 range at Kentucky Dam. Upstream at New Johnsonville TVAís forecast show the reservoir will be in the 355.1 range.

Water color is a bit dingy after last weekendís rain in some areas but clear in the main lake. Surface temperatures are in the 48 to 50 degree range and could warm a degree or two later this weekend.

Crappie show some improvement lately for anglers working stakebeds and brushpiles in the 9 to 14 foot depth range. The fish should linger in the midrange depths until cold weather returns and drops surface temperatures.

Bass fishermen were able to get back out last weekend and this week as southern winds brought slightly warmer weather. A few fish were taken by anglers tossing jig and craw combos and slow moving shad colored crankbaits on rock points and gravel bars.

No word yet from sauger fishermen but their time is close at hand.
