    Used to fish there ALL THE TIME!

    I grew up in Scottsville so it was pretty close
    I love the spillway there.

    I'm going to have to go visit my dad and hit it again sometime.

    I'm not for sure where we are going yet, I'll let you know if we plan to fish close to peters creek. what kind of baits have yall been catching them on? have you been seeing alot of shad up that way? last week we found thousands of shad about 1-2" long. have you used any that small? most of ours have been caught on worms and liver and some chicken brest. I've found a pontoon that I hope to trade for before this weekend maybe I can get some pointer on setting it up for fishing.( like a good place to mount the winch:wink:

    timmy, I think we are going to try our luck on the green river this weekend. good luck at barren. dont forget to take a few cans of cat food. it seems to bring in the channels.

    I had a good friend fishing for bass a couple of weeks ago at barren
    while casting a plug he hung a 35 lb flathead on 12 lb test I haven’t
    got to talk to him to see where he caught it but at least we know there
    is some big fish in there maybe one of us will be lucky before the years end
