WADING TO BLUEGRASS ISLAND IS POSSIBLE
TEMP- 78 Degrees
Today we can expect some scattered thunderstorms with the highs near 85. The rains ought to freshin up the river and get the lethargic fish moving again. We have still seen some good catfish activity in some of the deeper holes and up near Grand Rapids with some smallmouth still biting in various areas along the river. The remainder of the weekend thru Monday is expected to be sunny , clear skies highs near 90..great weather to get out on the river and lakes.
