    Below the dam

    For those of you who have been on guided trips, or guide, or just fish for fun on the Cumberland below Wolf Creek Dam for stripers I have a quick question. Are you throwing a net for shad in the river somewhere or catching bait on the lake and taking it that way? I would love to do a few summer trips trolling down there this year but have no idea on whether I need to try to find bait on the lake then load up and head there or if it is able to be found in the river somewhere. I would rather not have to resort to shiners. Thanks for any info you may have.

    no live bait transport

    catching shad (gizzards, alewives, thread fins) in one body of water and transporting them to another body of water is prohibited in Kentucky. this is to prevent/slow the spread of Asian carp.
    just a side note, if you're going to fish the Cumberland river right now for stripers you need to be at least downstream from the Tennessee state line using live trout , it's legal in Tennessee but very Illegal in Kentucky
