From The Lexington Angler


Fishing on the Cumberland River has been successful in recent weeks. Although the Corps is sluicing at about 2,000 cfs, they have only been generating for a few hours each day, making for excellent fishing opportunities. Fishing the river in a boat is ideal in these conditions, but wading is possible during times of no generation. The hatchery recently released over 12,000 large rainbows that are being landed regularly. Anglers are having success on size #14 and #16 nymphs and #18 zebra midges. Dry flies in size #18 such as a Parachute Adams or Griffith’s Gnat have been successful when casting to pockets of rising fish. White, flashy streamers fished below the dam have also been productive.


Several creeks in Red River Gorge received their Fall stocking of rainbows this week. Anglers will most likely have success here with soft hackle flies, size #14-#16 similar sized nymphs, and white wooly buggers.


Smallmouth fishing seems to be slowing down with the low temperatures. Fish can still be taken on heavily weighted streamers fished slowly. The water levels on local smallmouth streams are very low right now, so fish will be concentrated in deep pools with slow current.


Fishing on the Dix River has been tough recently, as they are generating almost every day at 2,000 cfs in attempt to lower Herrington Lake to winter pool. On days with no generation, anglers can expect to have productive fishing using similar flies to those recommended for the Cumberland River.

Irish Trout

 

Recent trip to Ireland with the Lexington Sister Cities Delegation to County Kildare (southwest of Dublin) gave me the opportunity to fish for trout with a professional Ghillie, named “Mick” Casey, who runs the fishing operation at the K Club Hotel and Golf Resort in Straffan, County Kildare, Ireland. We fished on the property in several different small lakes and ponds that are part of the 18 hole Arnold Palmer Ryder Cup Course, host of the 2006 European Ryder Cup. The River LIffey also runs through the 550 acre K Club property and contains several fish species including Trout.


The K Club is part of the Straffan Estate established in the 1830’s and includes the Straffan House, an elegant English Country Mansion that has been totally renovated in 1991 and serves as the hotel for the K Club and Golf Clubhouse, for two 18 hole courses. Their website is www.kclub.ie
