    Lake Barkley has alot of catfish, channels, blues and flatheads. Both largemouth and smallmouth bass. Stripes both white and yellow. Lots of crappie, bluegill, redears. Skipjack, suckers, carp, buffalo, gar, drum. I know I've left out alot of fish but you get the idea, Barkley is a very good lake to fish.

They are mainly bottom feeders, eating insect larvae, crustaceans, small fish, clams, and snails. Drum are found throughout the state, excluding trout streams of eastern Tennessee and are common. Their average harvest length is 10 inches and range from 6 to 14 inches.[/FONT]

    Uglier than me, round mouth, with a set of lips like Goldie Han.
