12/22/2018: As water temperatures drop, sauger begin to stage below dams in rivers and creeks. The Ohio River, Kentucky River, Salt River, and Elkhorn Mainstem hold sauger, and are easily reached from Central Kentucky. In my opinion, sauger are the best eating fish in Kentucky (though crappie give them a run for the money).
Below is a YouTube video I shot a few years ago about sauger on the Kentucky River. Check it out, and tell us about your sauger fishing experiences in the comments!
