Kentucky's Stream Fisheries

Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) is committed to conserving and enhancing fishing and boating opportunities throughout the state. This page will provide anglers with detailed information about the rivers and streams around the state including public access sites, maps, river levels and data on the fisheries.  Please visit this site often, as additional pages will be posted as they are developed.

Attention: Most streams in Kentucky are surrounded by private property. Please respect these landowners’ property and ask permission to access them. Fishing on private property is a privilege.
