    FRANKFORT, Ky. – The weather can be erratic and water levels can fluctuate wildly, but spring brings with it some of the best muskellunge fishing of the year.
    Anglers looking to tangle with a big muskie are fortunate to have an abundance of options in Kentucky – from Cave Run, Buckhorn and Green River lakes and their tailwaters to native muskie streams like the Licking River along with Tygarts and Kinniconick creeks.

    FRANKFORT, Ky. – The cold, muddy water coursing through many rivers in Kentucky right now brings another round of dread in anglers. This situation seems depressing, but for anglers with level 10 cabin fever after this long, dark winter, it is good news.
    When the rivers clear and stabilize, the sauger and walleye fishing will take off downstream of Green River Lake, Lake Cumberland, Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley.
