Kentucky is an angler's paradise.

Lake fishing and river fishing in the Bluegrass State offer up a wide variety of species for anglers to pursue. Giant blue cats in the Ohio, trophy bass and crappie and even the Muskie Capital of the South, all await the eager fisherman in Kentucky's vast waterways. Whether you’re planning on a Kentucky lake fishing adventure or want to try your luck on a trout stream or creek, all you need is to get your license and decide which area to fish first – find a full list of places to fish in Kentucky below.
