KY Afield Outdoors: New Fishing Regulations for 2019

By Lee McClellan

Frankfort, KY - An old blues song "High Water Everywhere" lamented the damage caused by the great 1927 Mississippi River flood.

Kentuckians so far this winter can empathize with those sentiments. Many rivers still run high, Lake Cumberland is at summer pool in January and other reservoirs are well above winter pool. The weather forecast calls for more rain, followed by wicked cold.

The spring fishing season seems eons away, but it is not. March will be here in little more than a month, bringing warm winds, a new license year and some new fishing regulations that go into effect March 1.

Letter: Russell Creek holds special memories

Ann Curtis writes:
Hi Linda, I love this photo! Russell Creek is very special to me, since my parents were living next to it when I was born, in the house where Sue Sandusky lives now. My parents lived there with my grandfather, CH Sandusky, who had built the house.

Mother told me that before I was born, she would sometimes climb the bluff on the adjacent side of the creek and pick wildflowers. --Ann
Comments re photo 82355 Winter view over Russell Creek to Green Hills

Thank you, Ann. Your comments always make for positive pictures of Columbia and Adair County. I can picture your Mother in search of wildflowers by the creek and I share a dream with others of seeing that area turned into a riverside park someday. - LW
