Fished Barkley over the weekend and the tailwaters . Tailwaters : Water is over the rail :sad2: Did see some bow fishing going on and gars flopping on the bank and spoonbills . In my opinion if your gonna shoot the spoonbills get some use out of them. 1 channel about 18 in and 1 lg mouth pushing 20 in both from shad and 1 mean ole snapper hub cap size . Cat and Bass on shad from Poplar Creek . 1 cat and some gills from Eddyville Penetetiary close to bank .Cat on half rot. shrimp 1 run on a lil' gill and I missed it !I would bet the channels are spawning in the rocks .Find rocks you will find channels .Be prepared to show fishing license .Was checked 4 times over the weekend .Good luck and be safe.
