Good Fishing Close to Home


The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) created the Fishing in Neighborhoods(FINs) program in 2006 to provide anglers with quality fishing opportunities close to home.

In 2012 the program includes 35 lakes statewide. The aim of the program is to create quality fishing opportunities near cities of all sizes throughout the state. Lakes are regularly stocked with catfish and rainbow trout throughout the year. In addition to these lakes being stocked with catfish and trout, the sunfish and bass populations are regularly sampled to ensure natural reproduction is meeting the needs of anglers. Stocking of hybrid sunfish and/or largemouth bass occur if needed.

The FINs program is a cooperative agreement between KDFWR and Continue reading Good Fishing Close to Home
