Barren River Lake Fishing Report

By Josh Morris
As another weekend rapidly approaches, the fishing on Barren River Lake continues to be hit or miss.
High pressure last weekend made for some tough conditions.
The fish were few, and far between. Downsizing has been the trick for bass. drop shoting has produced some good catches as of late, and the bigger NED rig as well. When conditions get like this it is never bad idea to throw the Carolina Rig either.
Bass can still be caught on the main lake points and on bluffs. Drop shots, plastic worms, Carolina Rigs, and Jigs are all producing.
Hybrids are still doing good between the islands. Live shad or shiners are best.
Crappie are doing well at night under lights. Good numbers are being caught on live minnows.
I hit the water with the talented Leslie Kidd of Leslie Kidd photography to do some much needed photos.
I have been blessed to pick up a couple more sponsors over the last few days Jackall and Power Pro line.
The flick shake worm is a killer drop shot bait and in a green pumpkin color is hard to beat on Barren. I am excited about our new venture and hope you folks all check them out.
Also The GLoomis cup date is set for Sept. 30 on Barren River Lake. This is a free tournament with great pay outs. For more information, you can contact Todd at Barren Outdoors in Glasgow KY. (270)629-4867, or you can call or text me (270)590-4725.
