Had one of my best days ever on the Cumberland yesterday.
Water was 49.5 degrees in main river and up to 54 in the shallow creeks.
Fishing for cats started @ 6AM and pulled out @ noon.
Caught all my fish between 6:30-9:30.
4- under 12 lbs but above 5lbs
Epic day, perfect flow (29.5k CFS)
If I had not run out of bait, I would not have left. Bait was scarce. I looked for over three hours.
Good luck. Monsters due exist....
