Kentucky Lakes winter fishing scene has been on a roller coaster lately with a few decent days mixed in-between some downright cold and windy ones. Most local anglers have been picking their days, taking advantage of the times when moderate temperatures and light winds were present.

Surface temperatures this week have been in the 41 to 43 degree range. Water color has been clear across the reservoir.

Lake levels continue to dance a foot or more above the normal winter pool mark. TVAs projections for the weekend show the elevation will be in the 356.2 range at both Kentucky Dam and upstream at New Johnsonville.

A few winter crappie anglers have braved the elements lately and reported fair catches from deep, main lake ledges in the 18 to 24 foot depth range. Although anglers have not taken limits there have been enough fish hitting to keep the interest level going.
