Lincoln County's Cedar Creek Lake, a major tourism project, has received national recognition as one of the top 35 bass fishing lakes in the United States. Only two impoundments in Kentucky are on the list in the May issue of the outdoor magazine, "Field & Stream". Kentucky and Barkley Lakes are also on the list but are listed together. Cedar Creek Lake, which is located on U.S. 150 between Stanford and Crab Orchard, and just 16 miles from I-75, was listed No. 30 just after Kentucky and Barkley Lakes.

The warm spring rains of March and April which bring rising, dingy waters is just the ticket for bass fishermen. As the water warms and the lake levels rise, bass begin their move to shallower cover in search of food. Although they'll eat anything that catches their attention, they're most interested in crawdads, and the occasional night crawler, salamander or newt that happens by will be gladly and eagerly eaten. Among the key areas to target at this time of year on Cumberland, Dale Hollow or even Herrington lake are "run-ins.

FRANKFORT Cedar Creek Lake in Lincoln County was scheduled to be stocked today with 842 sterile grass carp to help control aquatic vegetation in the lake. "We are not trying to eliminate the vegetation in Cedar Creek Lake, but reduce it so it doesn't get to nuisance levels," said John Williams, southeastern fishery district biologist for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "We will conduct a low density stocking of grass carp. " Thinning the aquatic vegetation in the lake will help improve the condition of the medium-sized bass in Cedar Creek Lake.

Fishing is a way of life for Nicholasville's Bill Hayden. In fact, when he first started on his family's farm in Jessamine County, Hayden wasn't particular in the type of fish he sought. "I'd fish anything that bites," said Hayden, a general contractor who owns The Hayden Group in Nicholasville. Hayden got his knack and love of fishing from his mother, Flossie Hayden who showed him the ropes when he was a youngster. Among his earliest fishing memories are times spent at a neighbor's pond.

I have talked to several people lately who have had really good luck fishing for white bass. Some of the ones I talked to were using artificial baits, and one person told me he used a cast net to trap live shad minnows. He then used these minnows for bait, saying he caught a heavy stringer of white bass fishing from a dock above Chenault Bridge on Herrington Lake. It is my understanding that white bass are on the riffles now, and if you can find such an area, your luck should be good.

Note: This is part one of a two-part article on the different types of structure that bass use throughout the year. Be sure to check out the sequel to this article in the coming weeks. The bass may just be the most unpredictable creature that has ever been created. We think that they should be in a given area at a particular time and often times we are wrong. Occasionally, we hit the mother lode and pack our livewells with some nice catches. Bass can hang in virtually any spot on a lake, but there are certain areas that they prefer to others.

Anglers can expect to see a plentiful fish population in Cedar Creek and trophy-sized white bass and good numbers of largemouth bass in Herrington Lake, according to the 2006 fishing forecast released by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife. Biologists write the forecast using the 2005 population surveys, interviews with anglers, planned fish stockings and historical data. In larger reservoirs, such as Herrington Lake, population surveys will be done in the spring and fall.

CREELSBORO - It's just past 9 a.m. on a December morning. The air is cool and the wind is even chillier, but Chad Douglas and Mike Moore are shin deep in Cumberland River. They're putting in Douglas' boat at Helms Landing for a day of fishing. Their waders help shield the wet, but the coolness of the water can't be blocked. It's a late start for the duo, though. It's not unusual for them to be well on their way to the river before day break, sacrificing a good weekend of sleeping in for the thrill of the hunt.
