Hello again to all of you Kentucky Lake and Moors Resort lovers! Don, Eric, and myself hope all has been well since our last report and everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I had a chance to sit down for a bit on this beautiful last afternoon of May, so I thought I better let you know what has been taking place on the water.
The current lake levels as of today are that TVA has Kentucky Lake at 359.13, and Barkley at 359. Kentucky is projected to be 359.31 Thursday, and 359.35 Friday. The projected outflow for the next two days on Kentucky is 65,000 cubic feet per second. Both lakes are listed at 73 degrees with those temperatures being taken at each dam.
On the weather side of the spectrum, it looks pretty good for the rest of the week. Temperatures are expected to top out in the low to mid 80's. There is a chance for isolated thunderstorms tomorrow, PM thunderstorms Saturday, and AM Thunderstorms Sunday. The winds look very fishable the rest of the week with Sunday being the most questionable forecast at 10-15 from the South and Southwest.
As far as fishing is concerned, I have no complaints what so ever. The only species we have really been spending any time chasing has been the White Bass, and I will tell you it has been fun. As always, some days are better than others. A few days, the current was a little shy, and we had to scramble around and figure out where to find our fish or hang in until they decided to run some water to get the fish going. I don't know how long they will continue to generate the good current we have been having, but I am keeping my fingers crossed it will continue. Our fish have been coming at the mouths of major bays and creeks. Rarely have I been able to find them in the same place everyday, so it requires a lot of moving and persistence. We have been using both jigging spoons and Ken's hybrid spinners to take our fish. We also have been able to catch good numbers of Yellow Bass, and an occasional Catfish and Bass in the mix.
I am still hearing of some good catches of bluegill being made by people. I did try to Crappie fish a couple of times after we had limited out on Whites. Neither of those were very productive. I would not let this discourage you from trying, because I am sure someone is catching them somewhere on the lake. I hope to catch a day where I can devote more time to it and figure out if I can catch one or not. It is very possible that I was at the wrong place at the wrong time. My plan is to keep trying until they tell me I am wasting my time.
Now is the time to come visit the lakes area and Moors Resort. The weather and water are warming up, and summer time activities are in full swing. The Moors and the entire lakes area has a lot to offer people of all ages. For any of you folks that would like to give the fish a try, give us a call. We have a lot of open dates in June. The dates that I personally have open for this month are June 1st and 2nd, the 5th through the 7th,13th through the 15th, 17th through the 22nd, and the 26th through the 29th. My cell is 270-331-3519, and Don's is 270-559-1366. Give us a call and we will get you on the water and do our best to show you a good time and send you home with some fish.
