    You are right Bill, I live 2 hours away from Lake Cumberland, and It has been in the News around here a lot about the Water level being down because of the Dam.

    The big topic right now is that the Army Engineers are wanting to take the water level down some more; which would hurt the economy of Lake Cumberland area, because it is one of the top boating destinations in America (Rated by the Travel Channel)

    Been fishing Cumberland off and on the last couple of weeks for a few hours in the evening. Mostly after what little rain showers we've had. Had pretty desent success fishing nightcrawlers off of structure about 20 to 25ft deep. Primarily the Pitman creek area. The largest was about a 7lb flat.
