Winter fishing on Kentucky Lake continues to be a victim of high winds and cold weather. Late last week conditions warmed for a few days but this week winter weathe returned and the overall fishing scene is not much to brag about.

Both crappie and sauger fishermen have had tough luck. Bass anglers hoping for a winter bite havenít had much action either.

Lake levels have been falling this week after a pretty quick rise last week that saw elevation jump over three feet above winter pool. Water color is dingy and muddy in some places due to wind and runoff.

Elevation in the New Johnsonville area was expected to be in the 358.1 range going into the weekend and slightly higher at Kentucky Dam. However, although lake levels have been falling all week the influence of some rain and snowmelt up stream, along with the rising Mississippi River may see rising lake levels return by early next week.

Surface temps have danced around the 40 to 42 degree range but will likely cool some this weekend with the influence of the cold front.

A few crappie anglers have stalked the deep ledges but havenít found the fish cooperating. Some sauger were taken at the mouth of Duck River but elsewhere things have been tough.

It appears anglers will have to wait for moderate weather to return before things improve. The weatherman says next weekís temps should return to the normal range for this time of year.
