    Guys I guess that the river is going to be hanging or rising a bit. The lakes are pulling back down to winter pool and the water is heading down stream.:crazy:

    i dont know ken, but i have seen him lurking around in a few different places. i guess he just has lock-jaw for the first time ever...hahaha

    just out of curiosity, why is it that they pull the lakes down to a winter pool. i have never really thought about it and am curious why they do it.

    The lakes in this area were constructed for flood control purposes. In the winter when we get most of our rain the lakes constantly fluctuate up and down. In the spring when flooding is most likely it is nothing uncommon for the lakes to be way up in the timber to keep flooding from happening down stream. This is just my simple way of looking at it, someone else may have a better explanation

    I don't know where he is either??? Strange....:confused2:

    Went trout fishing at Greenbo yesterday. I didn't do any good but saw several caught. I guess if I had the right bait i'd have caught some.:roll_eyes: Thinking about going back there soon.

    Power bait I think. The little yellow egg looking stuff.:confused2::smile2:
    I tried wax worms & crawlers but no hits.:confused2: Think I may go tomorrow and buy some of that stuff and try to catch a few. They were supposed to stock 15,000 in there.:eek:oooh:

    I've heard that stuff is pretty good stuff for trout. sometimes the color is what triggers the bite with trout. I would take some corn along too. If ya could find some small earth worms they might work too.

    if you are going to buy bait, a lot of people over look the usefulness of a few small crappie minnows. TNT sells red ones that work sell for crappie and a buddy of mine catches lots of trout on them. trout love those roostertails and inline spinners.

    let me know when your going next i may meet you out there...

    I'm thinking about going tomorrow. Not sure what time yet, still have to go get some of that bait. My luck they won't want it tomorrow...:roll_eyes::smile2:
    I've never eaten trout so I may keep a few to try out.:confused2::big_smile:

    I guess 8 is still the limit on them. If ya get a hold of a limit you got a couple of nice messes of fish. I guess they stock the small ones there like they do at Paintsville.

    A lot of people swear by the Jensen Super Duper lures for the trout at Greenbo. I'm not sure if you can catch 'em at the bank or not, maybe at the Dam. Also heard a great way to fix 'em is to cut off the head, gut 'em and drop in deep fryer filled with peanut oil. Dang, I'm making myself hungry.
