Monday, May 2nd
No guiding this past weekend. It looked like it was going to rain all weekend long so I made the call. My guys on Saturday would have been fine, but my ladies on Sunday were new to the sport and it didn't look super promising. The watershed really received a lot of rain. The lake is on the rise, but it appears the the Corps is allowing the lake to rise close to summer pool and not cranking all 6 generators 24/7. Fingers crossed. The water was warming, the caddis were active and the fishing/catching was really picking up. I have this Saturday May 8th open. Another May date that is open is the 22nd. As always it is best to contact me at 502 432-5188. You can also view the pictures/videos of recent trips on my Facebook page st DoubleDOutfitters

Guided yesterday and my guys tore it up. There was one area that we hit before lunch where we had a hit or caught a fish on nearly every cast. Most were less than 15", but there was more than a fair share of slot fish throughout the day. I have a handful of open days between now and July, including some May weekend days. Check out updated pictures and reports on My Facebook page at Double D Outfitters. You can also text/call me at 502 432-5188 to reserve a date on the river.

Guided this past weekend and we caught fish, but we had to work to get them. I fished Winfrey's in the morning and then Helm when the water reached that area. It is more work, but it gives me some options when the Corps seems like they are changing the generation schedule. Downstream from Winfrey's on Sunday I noticed some huge caddis hatches, actually they were laying their eggs. However, there were very few risers. Most of the fish we caught were on the small side, but we did boat a couple of nice ones. On Sunday Tim landed a brown just a shade under 21 inches! The water is slowly clearing and it is starting to warm up. This next couple of weekends could get special if it all comes together. I think next Saturday is open and Sundays throughout May are open. Check out my Facebook page at Double D Outfitters for updates and pictures of some nice fish. It is best to contact me on my cell at 502 432-5188.

The river is starting to fish better. Haven't been in a week, but the flows have lessened and the water is clearing. I have this Saturday open as well as the next two weekends. Most of my Sundays are open. I might have one early June opening. I have about a half dozen openings in July. These Spring trips can get tricky with rain and bumped up water releases. As always, if it looks good then we go. If not then save your $ and we will try it again. As always it is best to text/call me at 502 432-5188. You can also e-mail me at Cumberlandtrout@gmail.com.

A Happy Easter to all. Spring is in the air and the fishing is just starting to take off. Fished last weekend and my guy caught a 4 lb brown on an egg pattern. If we saw risers then he would swing a Chicago fly with a cracleback trailer. They really liked the cracleback. Now last weekend was cold, like just above freezing cold. The water temp was 44 and the take was subtle, but the fish were full of fight when hooked. I believe the best fishing picks up when the water temp gets to 50. If you want to go on a weekend between now and the end of May then go ahead and reserve your day. This time of the year can be really on or off depending on rainfall and water releases. No deposit necessary. If it looks good then we go. If not then stay home and maybe we can do it another time. My June is fully booked, but there are still about 10 July dates open. Text/call at 502 432-5188 or e-mail me at Cumberlandtrout@gmail.com if you want to book a trip. It could get interesting over the next few weeks if the Corps continues to cut back on water releases.

There is a good chance that the river will be fishable this weekend. The Corps has really cut back on releases, especially on weekends. I know that it is going to be cooler with a chance of rain. Looks like Saturday would be the best pick. If interested then call/text me at 502 433-5188. I still have some weekend openings in May. However, there are no more June openings. July is getting full as well. Some people have even started reserving fall weekend dates. Looks like a busy summer!

No guiding yet. It looks like the Corps is starting to cut back on generation. It could get interesting in the next couple of weeks if we don't get too much rain. Sounds like a broken record huh? As for available dates, there are a few May weekend days still open. June? Well, there are only two open days and those are the 6th and the 14th. I have over 20 days booked in June and if I fill many more then my wife may leave me. Several July openings are still available. If you are looking for a fall date then I can also reserve it. As always it is best to text/call me at 502 432-5188. You can also email me at Cumberlandtrout@gmail.com.

Nothing new to report due to snow and rain. It is going to be a while, but that is pretty much the norm for winter and early spring. My June calendar is half full, 15 trips and July isn't far behind. If you are thinking about booking a trip then you need to get on it. Last June was my best June ever. July was a blowout due to excessive rain which is not the norm. Get a buddy and book a trip before they are gone. Contact me by cell at 502 432-5188 or at Cumberlandtrout@gmail.com.

I know it has been a while, but I honestly haven't fished since December. The water releases have been just too high. There was a small window of opportunity when the Corps was holding back water due to all of the flooding along the Mississippi River back around Christmas. However, this Saturday the Corps might cooperate and give us a schedule that could produce some fish. If I get out on the water then I will be sure to post a report on this page or on my Facebook page. This past week the Lake Cumberland region received around a foot of snow! Some of the roofs of the local marinas collapsed under the weight of the snow and many boat are sinking! I didn't realize how bad it was until I saw some of the reports on Youtube and the news. What a lot of people fail to realize is that the depth below most of these marinas is extremely deep and I have no idea how they will be able to salvage some of the boats. If you need to contact me then text or call me on my cell at 502 432-5188. My new e-mail is Cumberlandtrout@gmail.com. If you are looking at booking a trip in the spring or the summer then you might want to give me a call to reserve your day. No hurry yet, but I have started booking some trips recently. All it takes is a couple warm days and folks will start getting the itch to get out and cast a line.

Happy Holidays to everyone. I have not guided since the week of Thanksgiving due to high water. The Corps is dropping the lake quickly, but it still needs to drop more before they hold back on water releases. For those of you who fish the river with any regularity know that this is quite common after heavy rains. We all enjoy the warm temperatures of El Nino years, but we can do without the excessive rain. Cold dry winters are great for fishing. Warm and wet winters equals generation which equals no fishing. Let's all make a holiday wish for less rain and more fishing. As always, it is best to contact me on my cell at 502 432-5188 or you can also check me out on Facebook at DoubleDOutfitters.
