The Minor E. Clark Fish Hatchery near Cave Run Lake is operated by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. This state fish hatchery is one of the largest warm-water fish hatcheries in the nation. The hatchery produces nearly four million fingerlings annually that are released into Kentucky lakes, rivers and streams.

 

Largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, muskellunge, striped bass (rockfish), hybrid striped bass and walleye are some of the sport fish reared at the hatchery. During the summer months, an outdoor viewing tank is open for viewing many of the larger fish species. When visiting the hatchery, bring your binoculars to view the birds that also inhabit the area.
