Kentucky Lake Offers Some of the Best Crappie and Bass Fishing in North America, Give it a Cast!

Kentucky Lake offers all the things you would expect, miles of uncrowded, almost “private” waters to boat on and fish, quiet inlets for picnicking, sunbathing, swimming and hundreds of miles of unspoiled shoreline to leisurely explore in peace and quiet.

There is plenty of good fishing for almost all species of freshwater fish, including crappie, bass, white bass, catfish, sauger, and blue gill. Our private, full service marina offers fishing boats and motors, multiple pontoon boats, single or double wide slips with electric, and of course, gasoline. Kentucky lake also sponsors many national bass tournaments. We also have fishing licenses you can buy right at the store by the marina!
