As you can see a vast amount of the foliage at Lake Cumberland is still mostly green. There are a few dogwoods, redbud, tulip tree, walnut, and sweetgum that have sparsely began to turn, but not enough to give an actual percentage yet. The lake is at a nice level for some good fishing.
It would be a great time to check out a persimmon to see if we are going to have a hard winter this year. If you split open the seed and you find a fork we are doing good, but if you find that dastardly spoon we are in trouble. This is of course according to old fables, but I have heard that many times they are pretty accurate.
Even though the trees are not turning much yet it is still a very beautiful time to visit and enjoy this really nice fall weather. Take a hike down one of our nature trails or just enjoy some of the surrounding scenery.
Take a trip down and visit Wold Creek Dam or the Fish Hatchery. The cool weather is perfect for sight seeing.
