Trout in the Classroom Update

The snow days have taken their toll on our trout.  We are resupplying some tanks and bringing an initial stocking to our two schools in Bell County.  Plans are beginning to formulate for the Spring releases.   This is a chance to see the progress the students have made during the year.  Lots of room for volunteers to help with the release.  Not much work is involved, just being on site is the main thing.  Maybe passing out fish to awaiting students.

Floyd's Creek Stocking

5 Rivers College Outreach Program


5 Rivers seeks to establish TU chapters at colleges and universities to spread conservation programs and fly fishing education.

If you'd like to help in establishing this program at any of our local universities, please contact us.

From The Lexington Angler

Over the past few weeks, fishing has been slow in most places in Central Kentucky due to the nasty weather and extreme temperatures. However, people are still fishing where the creeks are not frozen, with moderate success, but anglers should set their expectations low until water temperatures rise. One place that has seen great fishing over the past few weeks is Otter Creek Recreation Area outside of Louisville. Fishing at Otter Creek has remained good throughout the Winter and should continue to be a quality option for those wanting to wet a line over the next few months. The creek was stocked with numerous large fish last Fall, and again in late January. There are currently significant number of fish in the 16"-22" range in multiple sections of the creek. Fishing at Otter Creek has been exceptional when water levels are low. Be sure to bring a net if you go!
 
The Cumberland River tailwater is still seeing high flows, but water levels should recede soon, once the snow melts and temperatures return to normal. The Dix River has had high flows on most days over the last month or so, but there have been windows of opportunity with good water levels and active fish.  It is imperative to know the generation schedule at both these tailwaters before you plan a trip, as water levels fluctuate significantly creating dangerous conditions and rendering the waterways extremely challenging to fish. 
 
There are also numerous delayed harvest streams that are currently full of trout and can be a good escape from cabin fever this time of year. 
 
Give us a call at the shop, (859) 389-6552, for more details on any of these streams.
