I live near Barren River Lake and enjoy everything that it has to offer.
I have been a journalist for over 30 years and taught journalism for over 20 years. I enjoy writing about the opportunities that the river and the lake and its surrounding communities offer both visitors and residents alike.
I hope that you will enjoy this blog and take advantage of the many things that Mother Nature, Barren River, Barren River Lake, and their surrounding communities have to offer.

    Nice job. Will try and visit more often.

  2. Looks good. It’ll be time to put a boat in the water before long with the temperatures climbing up like they currently are…

    Really enjoy your blog. Do you by any chance have access to Cumberland River info out of Burkesville. Guides like Johnny Rush etc.?

    Hello Clay,
    Do you think we could get Josh Morris to write a short article on the turnover of Barren R Lake? When does the lake turn over and what happens to the bite? How long does this slow down last? Appreciate it
