From the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers:
Fishing conditions on Lake Cumberland are reported as follows:
Bass can be caught during the day in creeks along the brush caught on worms and jigs in 12-15 ft. of water in the tree tops at the back of the creeks and at night on spinnerbaits, worms and jigs.
Stripers can be caught in the mornings on top water, mid-day on umbrella rigs and live bait, and at dusk and right after dusk on top water baits, red fins, slivers, Long A Bombers and jointed thundersticks.
Walleye fishing is good, they have moved into the red clay flats and can be caught on bottom bouncers with night crawlers and crank baits in 25-30 ft. of water. Walleye can also be caught at night along with the stripers.
Crappie are best at night under lights on minnows, shad, and jigging spoons.
