         3 generators (2) sluice gates and (1) orifice at Wolf Creek Dam

What's going on with the generation at Wolf Creek Dam?  I've been asked that question more over the past two weeks than I have over the past 17 years.  It's prime time for fishing on the Cumberland river, but recent generation schedules are keeping most fly fisherman off the river.  Central and Southeastern Kentucky usually av...

Fly fishing for trout on the Cumberland river hasn't been on fire, but it's been close.  Over the past 2 weeks our seasonal temperatures have changed, more leaves are transitioning to fall color, generation schedules have been mixed, and trout in the river have noticed all of this.

Well, it looks like Mr. Winter has finally decided to show up in the bluegrass state.  Don't let cold, nasty weather stop you from going fly fishing.  The Cumberland might be high right now due to generation, but don't let it hamper you from going to Hatchery Creek, the Smoky Mountains, or maybe trying a trip with a more southern location.   Hatchery Creek has been fishing well.  Watch for redds and be gentle if you catch a fi...

I've had lots of fishermen asking about the new Hatchery Creek below Wolf Creek Dam.  I fished this small stream a couple of weeks ago for about 3 hours.  This short video will give you a good idea of what it's like to fish this stream.  Thanks and please share!
