Lake Cumberland is a large lake located in southern Kentucky.  Because of its temperate climate, Lake Cumberland has a very long recreational season that thousands of visitors take advantage of every year.  This lake has become a major tourism destination for people that enjoy boating, swimming, fishing and just relaxing by the lake.

Fishing Tips

Fishing is very popular for a variety of species, however, most people come here for the tremendous striped bass fishery.  If you know what you’re doing or you decide to fish with a guide, you have a good chance to catch good numbers of striped bass with some big fish mixed in too.  Take a look at our Lake Cumberland Fishing Tips page for more fishing information.
