Green River Fisheries

Green River headwaters are located in Lincoln Country where it flows across central Kentucky to its confluence with the Ohio River. Near Campbellsville, KY the Green River has been impounded to create Green River Lake. Six lock and dams are located on the lower section of the river from Mammoth Cave National Park downstream to Henderson, KY.

Green River is one of the most biologically diverse streams in the country and supports good populations of many sport fish species which include: smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, spotted bass, walleye, sauger, muskellunge, blue catfish, channel catfish, flathead catfish, white and black crappie, rock bass and a variety of other fish. Public access exists on the entire river giving boaters and anglers a variety of fishing and boating opportunities.
