Late May is a prime time to catch catfish from Kentucky's reservoirs, small lakes, rivers and farm ponds.
"The water is warming into the 70s and catfish are about to spawn," said Gerry Buynak, assistant director of the Fisheries Division for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "Beginning in late spring and throughout the summer, catfish settle into daily patterns and feed aggressively."
