 Fishing Lakes

Take your group, family or friends fishing!

The KDFWR Lakes are open from dawn until dusk, are fully stocked, and you may fish free of charge with a valid Kentucky fishing
license. Licenses may be purchased at the Salato Center during normal Center hours or online in advance. Children under 16 do not need a license.

You will need to bring your own bait. Poles and tackle may be checked out free of charge at the Salato Center, however we cannot guarantee 
everyone will receive a pole.  Please call in advance for large groups! If your group is large, consider dividing them into smaller groups and rotating them.  If you would like them all to fish at once, please contact John Gutzeit to arrange for additional poles.  Last, please note that all visitors ages 16 and over 
MUST have a valid Kentucky fishing license.
