    Northern Ky spots

    I'm taking my dad out Saturday morning. Any suggestions on where to go in NKY? We will be fishing from the bank with live bait.
    Thanks,
    Tony

    Find a FINS lake nearby. There are several in northern KY. They should have recently (this month or last) been stocked with eating sized channel cats. You can go on Fish and Wildlife’s website to find the stocking schedule and pick the one stocked most recently.

    The fins lake in Alexandria is pretty good from what I hear I have fished there a few times it has a paved path all the way around it I've been told fishing for channel cats is very good

    Thanks again

    Hey guys. Thanks again for the info. We went to Bullock Pen the Sat after this post. We had some success catching around 10 bluegill and rock bass a piece fishing on the bank by the boat ramp. Yesterday we went to the Alexandria Community park lake and had much less luck. We each had a line on the bottom and one with a bobber from 730 until almost 3. My dad caught a bluegill and a small largemouth. I caught nothing. Talking to another guy fishing, I learned the channel cat stocking for July was pushed back or cancelled due to water temperature. I haven't heard or seen a date for the stocking to be rescheduled.

    Yeah ... they kinda had a little "problem" with the July stocking at several FINs lakes. Seems a lot of the cats they stocked died within a few days of being stocked, and some lakes even reported fish kills involving species other than the catfish they stocked.

    Doe Run

    My dad and I went to Doe Run yesterday. We fished off the bank right by the parking lot near the memorial little shelter. We caught a ton of bluegill and sunfish. A few of which were about hand size. I also caught a 12 inch channel cat and a 8 inch bass ( looked like a hybrid). Fishing the bottom resulted in a couple decent sized turtles as well (the larger one was a softshell that looked like he already had a line cut sticking out of his mouth). It was a great day for us. Quite a bit of action even if the majority were rather small.

    Amendment

    I reviewed the pic I have of the one I thought was a bass. Its definitely not. Its definitely a black crappie. I apologize for the mix up.
