Kentucky Smallmouth streams
I remember reading this article in print a couple years ago. I'm planning a trip to a Kentucky smallie stream soon. I've caught a lot of Kentucky Lake smallies, but haven't fished many streams for 'em. Just a few smallies and mostly Kentuckys on the Clarks' River in Calloway County. Anybody have any advice?

I'd highly reccomend the licking river or paintlick creek if you don't mind traveling a few hours east

What about the Logan County portion of the Gasper? Is it easy to fish? Places that are public fishing? Is it any good? Help!

There are lots of smaller creeks and streams around bowling green that have fair numbers of smallmouths. Most of them are not listed on the smallmouth stream listing though. I catch fair numbers of smallies and rock and KY bass using tiny brush hogs texas rigged in the creeks around here.

You guys just hit my topic. I love find smal creeks around home no one else knows about and just having a field day with smallmouth, largemouth, rock bass, warmouth, chubs, and even got on some pretty good size hybrid stripers one day. Anyways, I don't really know any major smallmouth creeks, I just wade fish a bunch of small ones around home (Maysville, Ky). Anyways, some baits I love are a 3 inch berkley power craw, black and red flake, with chartreuse pinchers. This is rigged on a 1/0 offset hook and a 1/16th ounce sinker. This little rig on ultralight spinning with 6 lb. test absolutely works awesome. Also I use a 1/16th ounce white rooster tail. Through my years of experience the rooster tail in that size and color is the absolute best bait all around. I've caught everything from tiny largemouth to a 6 lb largemouth, channel cats, stripers, bluegill, and just everything. But anyways I know Licking River has good smallmouth in it but I have never really fished it. Anyone know much about it as far as where to fish or what to use for smallies? But besides that I don;t really know places unles you want to come to maysville lol. Anyways good luck.

the part of the state i'm in here has some great small mouth fishing.....
kinney creek which is in lewis county is excellent for crappie, smallies, large mouth, and muskie....... hard to beat it
tygart creek is also great!
for wade fishing smallies the tribs to those streams are hard to beat...
the licking river is good as well....Another American "not thinking clearly", or so he says, !
