Striper Fishing on Lake Cumberland is a great experience for all ages. Whether you are an avid fisherman, a weekend warrior, or new to sport fishing, there is one thing for sure, when a trophy striper strikes, it is like nothing you have ever experienced before from a fresh water fishery! If you have dreamed about catching the big one, then you need to come experience this excitement first hand. You will be amazed and in awe as you see the explosion of a top water strike with a force that appears as though a cinder block was just thrown into the water from a second story building.
World Record Striped Bass and Bluefish
Bell is speaking about the various hybrid striped bass fisheries that the state fish and wildlife department has established in several waters throughout the Commonwealth. In Bell's district, Rough River Lake has been stocked with hybrid stripers for the last six years, and those anglers out there who are following the fishery are finding excellent piscatorial action. This story is true on several impoundments, some larger and some smaller, where this fairly new fishery has been extended and now encompasses about eight waterways. Along with looking at Rough River, we're going to take a look at what's happening in a couple of other top choices for this aggressive fighter.
Warranty & Support
Body coloration is olive-green to blue-gray on the back with silvery to brassy sides and white on the belly. It is easily recognized by the seven or eight prominent black uninterrupted horizontal stripes along the sides. The stripes are often interrupted or broken and are usually absent on young fish of less than six inches.
It looks as if several bodies of water will continue to produce good fishing, while one relatively recently stocked reservoir Rough River Lake will move up as one of the best hybrid striper hotspots in our state. Most local anglers agree. Hybrid stripers are rapidly becoming one of the most sought-after species swimming in our waters.
