    Kentucky Lake, Crappie, Bluegill
    Nolin lake, Crappie
    Green River Lake, Crappie
    I live close To Taylorsville but have never had much luck there. I like to spider rig drift or troll and I dont think that Taylorsville is a good lake for that type of fishing.

    Arrow Dbljig --

    you are correct in your assumption that Taylorsville is not a "prime" lake for spider rigging. I've fished it since it opened, and can tell you that the Crappie are "Very" wood oriented there. But, by the same token, you could use one of your long poles to vertical jig the timber - and probably catch some decent fish. I mainly cast jigs to the wood, so the spider rigging method is way down the list of my methods used. Besides - dragging jigs around, in open water at Taylorsville, is going to get you more Hybrid Striper/White Bass hits ... than Crappie !! :D
    Have you fished Green River Lake much this year ? I used to fish there quite often ... and caught some real nice Slabs from there. It's one of the few lakes I've fished, where trolling has paid off almost as well as casting. GRL is pretty cyclic in its size & number production ... several years of small fish, then a year of Slabs, then back to small fish. If this is the "year of the slabs" - please give me a hollar ... luck2ya ....cp

    I have fished Green 2 times this year but didn't do well. But just last week I heard reports of people catching 90 plus of 10 to 14 inch fish. They were fishing minnows over brush piles. If this is true, and I have no reason to believe that it is not true, I would say this might be an up year for the crappie cycle. I do Intend to try it again. I would think that the water is up and there is a lot of trash in the lake after all the rain. I am hoping to make a trip to Ky. Lake this weekend if all goes well with work this week.

    Exclamation Jefro/Dbljig and others - Green River/Taylorsville

    Anytime you want to know what the current water "levels" are at these two lakes (and others) - look here:

    http://www.lrl.usace.army.mil/wc/reports/lkreport.html



    You will also find - Barren, Rough, Nolin, Cave Run, and other watersheds. Click on the name of the lake/river (under the heading - Project) for a web page about those waters. Click on the "Today's Pool" number, of that body of water, and it will show you a chart - showing the last 15 months of the rise and fall of the water levels of that body of water.
    Good info to help you determine what the current conditions of the lakes are ... as it pertains to water levels. .............cp

    I mainly fish the river at Cave Run also, usually putting in at Poppin' Rock. Since the water has been up for so long I'm way ahead on jobs around the house and might try to get on the water some day this week too. I think the warter is still pretty high but they say most of the ramps will be open today with the exception of Clay Lick. Good luck.

    The latest I've heard is that the river is looking pretty good; murkey but not muddy. Is 6 feet over summer pool and dropping fast. Trimmer308 who reports on kentuckyangling.com and who fishes the north fork a lot says that part of the river is looking very good and thinks the high water has renewed the river. I know Poppin' Rock is open but as of this morning (June 30) Bangor was not available. Since they're dropping the lake about 8 inches a day and Bangor should be open by this weekend. Think I'll wait until after the 4th weekend to hit the river. If you go, good luck and I know what you mean about that prop killing thing! Friend of mine lost 2 of 3 blades in that area one day! Fortunately we had a good full charge on the trolling motor battery to get home on!
