KY Afield Outdoors: Three good stream floats for Smallmouth Bass

IMG_0701FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 16, 2016) Fishing for many species slows in the daytime hours during the heat of summer, but smallmouth bass who inhabit Kentucky streams bite willingly even on the hottest days.

Kentuckians who enjoy canoeing or kayaking are lucky to live in a state with bountiful amounts of cool, flowing water that hold smallmouth bass. It is hard to beat a summer day spent paddling a tree canopied Kentucky stream, navigating stream drops and catching smallmouth after smallmouth.

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources’ webpage at www.fw.ky.gov holds a wealth of information about stream paddling. Click on the “Fish” tab, and the “Recreational Fishing” tab on the dropdown menu. Both the “Blue Water Trails” page and the “Stream Fisheries page” may be accessed here. These webpages have oodles of information on access sites, articles describing the floating and fishing, fishing tips and printable maps.

Kentucky anglers who want to catch some feisty stream smallmouth bass summer should try these three floats. Continue reading: KY Afield Outdoors: Three good stream floats for Smallmouth Bass

hendersonJUNE 1, 2016

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Gary Henderson has resigned as head coach of the University of Kentucky baseball team, Director of Athletics Mitch Barnhart announced Wednesday.

 

“I am deeply appreciative of the contributions Gary Henderson made during his time here,” Barnhart said. “He has poured his heart and soul into Kentucky baseball, giving us many of the best seasons and most thrilling moments in our history while competing in the most difficult league in America. He has conducted himself and the program with honor and integrity. Already solid in the classroom, he challenged the team to even greater success academically and the players responded with several consecutive semesters with a team grade-point average over 3.0. Again, I am thankful for everything he has done at UK and wish the best for Gary and his family.”

EUGENE, Ore. – The Kentucky men’s golf team’s bid to advance to match play at the NCAA Championship came up just short on Sunday in Eugene, Ore., but that does not diminish its rise to become one of the nation’s top teams in 2016 in which the Wildcats achieved this year.

 

From a non-tournament team a season ago, to one of the top-15 teams in the country in 2016 the Wildcats enjoyed one of the best seasons in the country under the tutelage of Brian Craig who led his team to the NCAA Championship for the sixth time in his tenure.

Senior David Snyder and sophomore Tyler “Chip” McDaniel carded rounds of 72 on the final day of play to pace the Wildcats. Snyder’s round will cap his phenomenal career in the Blue and White. He appeared in every tournament in each of his last two seasons as a Wildcat and finishes his career as a two-time NCAA Championship participant.

 

Kentucky’s 13th-place finish is its highest at the NCAA Championship since placing fifth in 2006. Continue reading: UK Men’s Golf finishes 13th in NCAA Championship for best finish since 2006
