Welcome to our Kentucky Lake Fishing Home Page
Kentucky Lake is one of the world’s largest man-made lakes. The lake covers 2,380 miles of shoreline and 160,000 acres of water. Kentucky Lake is a very popular vacation destination. Whether you’re coming here for a fishing getaway or a family vacation, there is something to do for everyone.
Kentucky Lake is known for its tremendous crappie fishery. Spring and fall are the best times to plan a trip for the crappie fishing. During the spawn, 1 – 1.5 pound crappie are considered common. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are also plentiful on Kentucky Lake. There are more largemouth than smallmouth in the lake, but if you target the rocky areas, you can usually find some smallmouth bass. If you time the spawn right in the spring, you can experience some awesome fishing for largemouth bass with 30 to 50 fish days being possible. Get away from the crowds and find the pattern and you will catch more fish. Other species that are available are white bass, sunfish, sauger, catfish and striped bass.
Primary Species of Fish
Crappie & Largemouth Bass
Kentucky Lake is one of the better lakes for largemouth bass and crappie fishing. You can find both species of fish here in big numbers and big trophy fish are here too. Crappie up to and above 15 inches long are caught here and largemouth bass up to and above 7 pounds are in these waters.
Secondary Species of Fish
Smallmouth Bass, White Bass, Yellow Bass, Striped Bass, Catfish, Sauger, Yellow Bass & Perch
There are so many fish in Kentucky Lake. You can target a variety of fish here. Just because largemouth bass and crappie are the primary species of fish for most anglers, that doesn’t mean that you can’t go out and catch good numbers of smallmouth bass, white bass, catfish and bluegill. Perch and striped bass are here in limited numbers.
