Rough River Lake, KY

Catfish, bass, hybrid stripers and crappie fishing can be excellent at Rough River Lake, a 5,000-acre lake in the west-central part of the state, at Falls Of Rough. Many, many coves and fingers create over 250 miles of shoreline for boating and fishing. The setting is stunning and the fishing is awesome at times. Anglers can target multiple fish species in a single day, and find success with most. Marinas, boat launch ramps, rental boats, camping, bait, stores and restaurant are all close at hand to enhance your trip here. Cruise the whole lake by pontoon boat, pleasure craft or fishing boat, or pick a cove and enjoy the day paddling a canoe or kayak. Either way, you'll find beauty, serenity and some good fishing.
