Fishing at Green River Lake

Fun Facts ----> Green River Lake offers one of the premiere muskie fisheries in Kentucky. The KDFWR annually stocks muskellunge in the lake, and fish up to 40 inches long aren't uncommon. Muskies are most active in March/April, and then September through November.

Other Fish Found in Green River Lake
Smallmouth, largemouth, crappie and other species are present in the lake for anglers to pursue. The Corps of Engineers and the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources work together on various projects to improve fish habitats as well. The results from valuable partnerships such as this result in increased angler success, thus providing enjoyable fishing experiences for folks of all ages.
