    I was there yesterday and didnt have any luck with the skips. everone I spoke with was having the same problem. But lucky me found where someone had left a huge bag of skips for trash. and being the man that I am kept the skips and placed the trash in a can.

    thanks litterbug! but next time pick up your trash!!

    i fished barkley lake last week and locked through the dam,the water droped 43 feet locking through,so the cumberland river has werry little water in it.
    only had 1 turbine running so there was verry little current flow so it was verry hard to catch bait.after about a hour of throwing a cast net i had a grand total of 9 shad. verry bad fishing also,caught 2 cats about 3 lbs apeice. so moral of the story,if there is no current there is no bait and fishing is not good.
