Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists have developed techniques to assess the overall status of the major sport fisheries in lakes around the state. These assessments are used not only to give biologists an idea of the overall well being of the fishery in each water body, but they can also be used by anglers in planning their next fishing trip. For example, anglers can use the assessments to determine which lakes could result in good numbers of quality-size bass or where they might have the best chance of catching their next trophy.
The section entitled “Understanding The Largemouth Bass Assessment” gives the angler a better understanding of what type of information is used in the assessments and how they work. The specific results for each water body can be obtained by clicking on the lake name. The Department will be adding water bodies and species as the information becomes available.
