    Hey, if you could fish for channel cat's at KY lake ,what time of the year would you go?? And is any spot better than another spot,on the lake? The same thing goes for Lake Barkley. I was looking at the Lake down by Cadz KY.

    Garry when the spawn is about to start I have had luck on the rocks above the dam and on the east side of the lake for channels. I have also had success inside the connector channel of the two lakes on the sand bars.

    Well Garry....the best time I have found to go after channelcats on Lake Barkley would be the spring and early summer. The fall would be my next best time. They are still being caught in the winter, but not as many as in spring. I live just 5 miles west of Cadiz...we should hook up sometime!!!

    When I read John Young's post the thought went through my mind.There is the man in the know on the lake. John is the man I'd want with me if fishing Barkley or Ky lake Either.

    In the spring/early summer, fish the riprap rocks for eater size Channel cats. Also there is a grain terminal alittle south of the hwy 68 bridge on KY. Lake that is a good spot. If you want to try for a few trophy Channels, you'll have to come down, I only give that info in person :smile2:
