Local anglers come to fish for the many large stripers found in Lake Cumberland’s 63,000 acres. Lake Cumberland is the only lake that is stocked with striped bass by the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife. These bass are often found around deep-water structures, such as rocks, ledges, creek/river channels, or jutting underwater land. Stripers travel in schools that typically stay beneath the schools of baitfish. In the warmer weather, these stripers create some action on the water’s surface as they drive the baitfish upwards. Other species you can find here include catfish, crappie, walleye, bluegill, and white bass. The ample supply of shallow-water fish in this lake make it a great spot for shore fishing. The lake accommodates various types of boats with its more than 50 boat ramps.
