Fishing Report: A high use lake, Kentucky is stocked annually with 8000 Pennask Rainbows. Trolling with small lures and spinning gear is the most popular method used on the lake, but fly fishermen have also met with success. Kentucky is considered to be somewhat slow, however it quite often produces large trout in the 4-5 lb. range.
