On the Water
The freedom of a day on the water, a pull on your line, the thrill of the catch, the joys of fishing.
Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley, and our River system offer up some of the best freshwater fishing in the country. Western Kentucky’s Rivers and lakes offer an abundance of sport fish including catfish, sauger, bass, crappie, and bluegill.
Livingston County is the only location with access to both Kentucky and Barkley Lakes within one mile of each other, the canal that connects both lakes, and access to the tailwaters of Kentucky and Barkley Dams.
At over 210,000 acres of water, Kentucky and Barkley Lakes are large but are easily fishable in a modest size boat. Don’t have a boat? You can also find great spots to fish from the shore.
