The crappie population is definitely on an upward trend as indicated by local anglers reporting good catches of both white and black crappie.

“We are excited to return to Lake Carlyle this fall,” said CUSA Operations Manager Darrell Van Vactor. “The event will give six teams a qualification berth for the $125,000.00 Cabela’s Crappie USA Classic to be held just two weeks later on Lake Cumberland KY. The area has some fantastic crappie anglers as well as good crappie fishing for all who attend.”
