Crappie anglers finding success on local waters

GLASGOW — Crappie season is upon us and the last few days of warmer weather have been most productive for fishermen seeking some slabs on Barren River Lake.

With levels inching toward summer pool, crappie anglers have been finding their favorite species in several areas from the main lake to the creeks.

I heard some limit catches have been made in the Browns Ford area.

The biggest problem has been dealing with the wind. Our fishing reporter Todd Logsdon and a friend went Monday and had pretty good luck, but it took some hard fishing.

Those friends who ventured to Kentucky Lake last week felt the full impact of high winds and ended their visit early with only limited success.

Todd, who fished hard one day for about 20, did have one over 2 pounds.

Another group consisting mostly of the Oldtimers group are down there this week, but I haven’t heard how they are doing. Among them are two who fish Kentucky and Barkley lakes hard every spring, Larry Spencer and Freddie Carver, and they always manage to find them in big numbers. Conditions have improved greatly.

I’m expecting good things from them before the storms arrive that are predicted mid-week.
