Fishermen catching bass, crappie on Barren Lake

Glasgow Daily Times

GLASGOW — Bass and crappie are still biting at Barren if you're brave enough to fight the wind. I'm not!

I did talk to some fishermen Wednesday morning at Barren Outdoors. The place was full and Todd and Bill were too busy to talk but some of the customers had been out there after them. Talked to one crappie fisherman who has fought the wind with good success, bringing in several limit stringers. He's been catching them shallow but others have been catching them by spider rigging along the creek and river channels.

He said bass fishermen have been battling the crappie fishermen for fishing spots and have been catching bass on crank baits. Was unable to access the Corps website Wednesday morning so must assume the Barren level is still around 530.
