It's the full moon in the middle of May. The Largemouths are making their last big surge of spawning activity, and the Red Ear, Bluegill, and Catfish are at their peak of spawning. We had a great day catching lots of big Red Ears a couple days ago. Today I plan on catching some BIG ole Basses!

"Kentucky Lake Fishing Report Feb 8 2010 Perhaps area anglers have gotten spoiled the last few years. There have been winters when light winds and warm temps worked against waterfowlers but played right into the plans of fishermen suffering from cabin fever. This year has been different. From high water to low temperatures, winter weather has been stubborn to loosen its grip. Anglers have not fared well this winter in the Kentucky Lake area but perhaps that means more fish are left once spring arrives. for the rest of this fishing report go to http://www.parislanding.com/fishing_report_2810.htm"

"Feb 4th 2010 This time last week we had a water level near summer pool and the gates were open at Kentucky Dam. Today the gates are still open and we are about 2.5 feet above winter pool with a surface water temperature at the Dam of 44 degrees. The projection is for more of the same for several days to siphon the runoff created by the heavy snows from this weekend. Even if we have warmer air temps, I expect with the snow melt that the lake temps will stay about the same or drop a little. Stay tuned..

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.
Kentucky Lake Walleye Rating:
2.5
Kentucky Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
