Frankfort, Ky. – With Wolf Creek Dam at Lake Cumberland under extensive repair, anglers question the quality of fishing in the river below. Answers aren’t all that’s caught this weekend, April 26 and 27, on “Kentucky Afield” television.

Lake Cumberland tourism for 2008 continues its resiliency with news like this. Host Tim Farmer and renowned fishing guide Randall Gibson provide needed relief for skeptics. While construction crews are hard at work pouring concrete to repair the dam, cold-water habitat and trout are just as busy, giving anglers all they can handle. Five and 6-pound brown trout are plentiful, and so are reasons to come back to the Cumberland.

Elsewhere, in Harrison County, Kentucky’s wild turkey population is flourishing. On a farm whose owners follow the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources’ recommendations for habitat management, Commissioner Jon Gassett and Farmer set out to bring a gobbler home for dinner. Kentucky’s general hunting season for the Eastern wild turkey continues through May 4.
