Spring 2017

6/3/2017: I spent several hours kayaking the North Elkhorn after putting in above Robinson Dam. I caught a very nice hybrid sunfish (about 1 pound–a slab!) throwing a chartreuse roostertail. Several smaller bluegill and sunfish, but I couldn’t get any bass to connect. A great day on the water, still.

North Elkhorn, June 2017

5/16/2017: A quick trip to Sportsmans Lakes in Frankfort yielded one hit, no fish. Nobody else was catching anything either…

5/11/2017: Catfish stocking in FINs lakes is going on this time of year. Jacobson Park in Lexington is slated to receive 2300 catfish on May 12. Rolex Lake at the Horse Park will receive 1100 on May 23. Check out the Fish & Wildlife page for more info.

04/05/17: My young daughter is on spring break this week…I took her to a local lake to fish. She caught three sunfish, and Daddy caught none. She can catch all (well, most) of the fish and I’ll be happy.

Spring is here! Look for white bass runs in the Dix and Salt Rivers, and catch late season trout at FINs lakes around the state. Share your current activities in the comment section below.

  1. Hoping to be on the Dix when the white bass make their run. Anyone in “the know” please tell me the best time to go.

    Good luck fishing to y’all,
