    Lake Barkley water level

    I was wondering if anyone knows what the current water level is on Lake Barkley, or perhaps a site where I can find out. Thanks

    Sorry about the spelling, I meant Crappiepappy. My eyesight isn't that good. Time for new glasses.

    So does anyone know if the bass would move into the flooded trees/bushes this time of year with the cooler water temps? I love to flip and pitch when it floods on KY and Barkley, but have never tried it in the cooler water temperatures this time of year.

    I have zero experience on KY/Barkley but I don't see why my past experience would not apply to those lakes...If the water gets into the treeline/bushes and it has very heavy color then yes the bass will get very shallow and very tight to the cover. If the color of the water allows light to penetrate a couple feet then they do not get as shallow or as close to the cover...now with that being said there is another factor in the equation and that is water temperature. What I described was for water temperatures like we currently have now. If the temperature gets into the upper 50's or low 60 then they get on the cover even if the water is not that dirty.

    Man, one of my best days on barkley was several years back. It got flooded so bad they shut the lake down. I canít remember exact water level, but Iím sure some others on here would. It was amazing it was so high. The day Im talking about was a day or two before they shut the lake down. I was taking a heavy sinker and pitching a lizard as far back as I could and was wearing them out! Iíll never forget that day!
