    Default Green, Rough or Nolin?

    I haven't fish for crappies in years and would like to start again, I'm thinking about going to one of these three lakes to try my luck and catching a few crappies. Which of these three lakes do you guys think is better for crappie fishing? Out of the three I've only fished Rough river and the last time I was there the water was very stained and didn't have any luck, not sure about the other two lakes.

    Any of the 3 can be fantastic at any given time. I have more experience at Green, but also really like nolin. Just havenít fished nolin in a couple of years due to lack of time

    You left out Taylorsville Lake

    Seriously though, Green is probably your best bet for overall numbers of keeper fish, but most all of its cover is submerged. Pushing, Pulling, & Spider Rigging are probably the most used techniques on Green.

    Taylorsville, on the other hand, is a much smaller lake ... so you could spend a lot less time "searching" for cover to fish, as it has lots of downed timber & standing timber. You just have to remember that on Taylorsville Lake the size limit is 10" & the creel limit is 15/person/day. (whereas on Green the size limit is 9" & the creel is 20/person/day)

    If you are talking about 'now', Green is still 20+ feet over summer pool. Launching a boat is a challenge.
    The following statement is true. The previous statement is false.

    Nolin is 3 feet over summer pool and Rough is at summer pool. We went last weekend on Rough and caught a few nice ones. They were tight on brush piles or stuck to the trees. Right now the water is really muddy and has come up 7ft since the 11th.
