Kentucky Lake anglers have been suffering from cabin fever the last two weeks as inclement weather has kept most off the water and close to the fire.

Cold temperatures and high winds have not worked in favor of winter fishing lately but it appears things are about to change as a warming trend is knocking at the door. Temperatures are expected to rebound this weekend as the weathermen says the mercury will climb into the upper 50ís.

The warmer weather should get anglers back in the mood for some winter crappie and bass fishing after the recent hiatus.

Lake levels have been up a bit this week as recent rains to our south have pushed a lot of water through the system. TVA projects lake stages to be around 356.4 at Kentucky Dam as the weekend approaches. Upstream at New Johnsonville elevation will be in the 356.8 range.

The current readings are about two feet above normal winter pool range.

Surface temperatures this week chilled into the 38 degree range with some ice forming around shallow bays and island rims last week when single digit temperatures descended. Water color was showing some stain in the main Tennessee River but still clear in the mouth of Big Sandy.

Not many reports have come in lately from crappie or bass fishermen. And, still nothing to report from weary sauger fishermen who havenít fared well in quite some time.

Look for the winter fishing scene to improve if the moderate temperatures return and hang around for a few days.
