Striped bass are available to catch on Kentucky Lake, but they are definitely not plentiful. Anglers that do catch striped bass tend to catch them on accident most of the time when they are fishing for white bass. Below the Kentucky Dam is probably your best bet to consistently catch stripers. Crankbaits work well and so does live bait. The tailwaters will hold fish from spring through winter.
