My friends as the TH Marine, FLW, BFL comes to Barren River Lake this weekend the bags should be a sight to see. As some of the best fishermen of the Mountain Division descend on Barren River Lake I expect to see some good bags weighed in. For what has seemed the last few years a lake on the decline the last month has shown Barren River Lake is still a fisherman’s paradise.
Bass are being caught on long points dragging a Carolina rig. Or on a chunk rock transition bank dragging a Texas rigged worm. Lets not forget the power of a jig on this lake. Look on bluffs, with a green jig for some fish as well. Above is Taylor Logsdon of Barren Outdoors, She and dad Todd got on the water this week and really got some chunks in the boat!
Hybrids are good right now too. Trolling around the island with shad or shiners works well. Use your electronics to find the shad.
Catfish should be moving in on the rock walls to spawn very soon and the action should be fast! Use a pop eye jig an ultra light rod and reel with 6 pound test it is a blast! Under a float on the rip raff near bridges.
Fishers of Men was on Nolin Lake this week. It took just over 9 pounds to win! The fishing was tough. A lot of fish were caught but it was difficult to find and big fish. Big fish was 2.7 pounds.
Thank you for reading. I would love to see any photos you all have! Good luck and God Bless!
