Beaver Lake Kentucky is a bass fishermans paradise

The lake made a reputation for itself in the early 80’s as having one of the best ratio’s of the number of fish caught per hours fishing time of any lake inKentucky.

The lakes Marina has changed owners in recent months which has given it a change in the name as well.

About 2 years ago the wildlife and fish service came in and drew the lake down and used rotenone to destroy the gizzard shad in the lake. This has resulted in a serious growth in the Crappie Population and in the quality of the bluegill and Redear at the lake, so those are also something to fish for and pay attention to.

Due to the killing off of the Shad population there is a No Shad for bait policy on the lake. The size limit on Bass has also been raised to 15 inches. If you are caught with shad the fine is any where from $25.00 per baitfish, to $250.00 per baitfish.

YES, That is PER FISH in possession.

Early spring is also a great time to fish for some of the lunkers that inhabit the lake.

If you use a slow rolling a spinner bait with a large willow leaf spinner and casting large crankbaits works well for grabbing these guys..

You can also grab some fish with popeyes tipped with wax worms in as little as 6 inches of water during the May – June spawning period. Crappie will always hit nicely on minnows drifted at about 4 feet deep in creek arms during the same period, and people have caught some in excess of two pounds here.

Other species in Beaver are bluegill, black bullhead, longear sunfish, channel cats, and spotted bass.

The state has started spraying to keep the grass and algae mats down in summer.
