Kentucky Afield Outdoors: KY Lake on the verge of great crappie fishing

Poor spawns from 2005-2007 impacted the numbers of young white crappie in Kentucky Lake, resulting in spotty fishing for white crappie over the last several years.

The crappie population in the lake also morphed from mainly white crappie to predominately black crappie due to aging of the lake. The water flows clearer than it once did and more sunlight reaches the depths, generating more aquatic vegetation. Clearer water and more vegetation favor the black crappie and their numbers increased dramatically in the last decade in Kentucky Lake.

Joe K. Morris: Armchair All-Star

It's Conference Silly Season: You might think I’m crazy, but I’m hooked on all the conference realignment drama that’s going on in college athletics right now. It could be because I’m a NASCAR fan and I’m used to this sort of thing happening every year, but something about all this has really captured my interest.
