Lake Details

What you need to know about fishing Kentucky Lake

Kentucky Lake is located on the Tennessee River and is apart of the Tennessee River Authority (commonly known as the TVA). Beginning when the Kentucky Dam was constructed in 1944, Kentucky Lake consists of 160,300 acres and is the lowest of the nine TVA lakes. Being known for its famous bass and crappie  fishing, it has hosted countless national level tournaments every year. Kentucky Lake is known for having large schools of bass congregate on ledges in the main lake, resulting in an incredible offshore bite. Lures like large spoons, deep diving crankbaits, and football jigs will all produce fish. Kentucky Lake is also known for unprecedented panfishing. Trophy Bluegill, White and Black Crappie, and Redear Sunfish can all be caught, many view this as a very overlooked feature of Kentucky Lake. The Bluegill and Redear Sunfish can be found on shallow structure, docks, trees, and grass lines. While the Crappies are commonly caught on brush piles that are scattered around tapering points across the lake.
