Fishing Report: Cumberland River Week of 09-05-10 through 09-011-10

AVERAGE RIVER TEMPERATURE: Been jumping up and down. The highest Ive saw it was 61. Been averaging 58.
Average Generation for last week: 10,000 Cubes. 4 sluices 1 generator all week. Slowed down at end of week to 2,000 cubes.

Got out twice last week. Early in the week guide trip. Fishing was ok. Landed close to 20 stocker rainbows, and a small brown. Water was up that day, shoals a couple of feet under water during 10,000 CFS. Got out again at the end of the week when they lowered the generation. Did some bank fishing at Kendall park. Caught everything from Brown Trout to Drum. Fishing was great. A few nice walleye. Kept a mess of Walleye and Drum. Never had eaten drum before, but they make excellent tablefare. I could not tell the walleye from the drum :) It is Saturday morning and we had a system to move in yesterday. Lots of rain yesterday, and lasnight. Hoping it will cuttoff today. Looks like the TVA's Generating around 2,000 as we speak. Have a striper trip this week. Going to fish From about mile 8-Winfreys ferry. Been a productive stretch this year for striper. Especially from rockhouse to rainbow run. Baitfishing buddies catching nice striper consistently around structure early in the morning and late in the evening. Your shad imitations should be 4-6" long. Anything bigger is really not neccesary unless you are fishing mid day in deep water. Then we are fishing 6" angelhair streamers with doll eyes and lots of flash. Catching LOTS of walleye/sauger right now. Thinking it has something to do with all the rain??? Trout fishing is fair. Seeing alot of fish up to 15", just not much of anything bigger. Can't wait til fall!
If you need anything or have concerns if your planning on fishing this week contact me. Be sure to check generation schedules as I don't know what kind of rain we will be getting the rest of weekend.
