Heading to lake Cumberland this weekend and was wanting to get on some stripers and crappie. We’ll be staying at Conley bottom but willing to go where ever to catch some fish. Was hoping to get top water casting bite on at night but would guess that’s winding down. Any help tips is welcomed

I haven't been down there in a couple of months so I dont have any up to date info but I do fish that area a lot. If i was going this weekend i would look within a mile of the mouth (either direction and up the creek) of Faubush, white oak, and fishing creek to start.

I just talked with my SIL tonight and he just got home from a two day trip at Cumberland, they got five stripers, fishing with shad deep he said , no location ,so they were biting at least. He lives around Lexington, I went down years before the drawdown and we got some nice stripers

Pretty tough fishing this trip. Caught one keeper and one throw back half way back white oak on 25-35’ leads.
