Recent Activity and Conditions
The lake is around 45 degrees and near winter pool. Water clarity is stained to muddy due to recent rains on exposed banks. Jerk baits in the creeks may be your best bet on sunny days.
Wear your PFD and be careful on the water.
Nolin is rising fast due to all the recent rains. The lake is muddy and in the upper 40's. Jerk baits and a-rigs appear to be good bait choices along bluffs and in standing timber.
