Plan Your Spring Fishing on Kentucky Lake Early and Save!
There are year-round fishing opportunities available at Kentucky Lake, but Spring seems like when things really pick-up. Some say it’s the hint of warmer weather that stirs the fish, but we have come to know that fishing is something that can be part of one’s spirit. A connection that some fishermen (and women) have in their blood if you will. A spiritual call to the water and the creatures within. Whatever that looks like for you, we recommend that you plan early to get in on the action!
What Can You Catch?
There are a variety of fish species that are found year-round near our Resort and the surrounding Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley areas. Bass species include Black Bass (Largemouth, Smallmouth, Kentucky-Spotted Bass, and Coosa Bass), Rock Bass, Striped Bass, and Yellow Bass. While their population is abundant, there are statewide species and size limitations that should be followed. (See the Fish Species and Size Limit Regulations information by the KY Department of Fish and Wildlife.) Black and White Crappie, Bluegill, Catfish, and Sauger fish are also abundant in the area. The great thing is you don’t have to venture too far from our property to start reeling in something exciting!
Spring Spawning Season
March is said to be a great time to explore the shallow waters of the creeks and coves off Kentucky Lake (like ours) for fishing because it coincides with the spawning time for many species. Females get hungry and become more active searching for food before laying their eggs. Additionally, as the waters continue to warm in April and May, the fish become more active requiring a greater need to feed to sustain their activity.
