From the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers:
Fishing conditions on Lake Cumberland are reported as follows:
Smallmouth are being caught on the main lake on points and pockets. The best baits are jigs. Bass are also being caught during the day in creeks along the brush, on worms, brush hogs, and jigs. Also try the back of the creeks using crankbaits, popping lures, and walking baits.
Stripers can be caught during the day on umbrella rigs and live bait, and they have started moving back in the creeks.
Walleye are still being caught on red clay flats and can be caught on crank baits, bottom bouncers, and with night crawlers in 20-25 ft. of water.
Crappie are best on the main lake pockets around cover and in the creeks using minnows and jigs.
