    Does anybody on here know the campground name or how I can contact them. I am having difficulty finding any contact info for it online. Looking to go there in another month or so, and any help would be much appreciated.

    Default Report for the Cumberland?

    Speaking of the Cumberland....How is it fishing? I hope to be there later this fall but am concerned the fish are stressed even up near the dam. Any fishing report would be great.

    Kendall is the best you will find any where. I have been camping there for over thirty years and hope to have another 30.

    The fishing should be great. I fished from the dam to Rain Bow run last Oct. and the browns were spawning on every gravel bar. I had never seen it like that before. Must be because of the low water the fish were spawning on the river rather than going into hatcher creek. Any way it was great fun.

    Good Luck hope to see you there.

    I've been on the river a lot over the past several months, and have NOT seen any signs spawning brown trout, at least not downstream of Helms.

    I have seen some browns pairing up and have boated browns that are putting on the colors, but none have started fanning redds yet.
