Fishing

Lake Cumberland is a fisherman’s dream. The 1,255 miles of shoreline provide great fishing year-round. Many different varieties of fish can be taken.
Fisherman’s Dream Photo The lake is a fishery for both warm and cold water fish. Important predatory game fish are the largemouth bass, spotted bass, hybrid striped bass, walleye, sauger, and crappie. Prey species include shad, minnows, silversides, sunfish, and darters. In addition, channel, blue, and flathead catfish, chain pickerel, rainbow trout, and brown trout can be found below Wolf Creek Dam.

The Army Corps of Engineers manage the Cumberland River Fisheries, providing quality, while placing a strong emphasis on improving the aquatic resources and protecting the environment. Cooperation between Wolf Creek Project personnel and other natural resource agencies helps ensure we will all be able to enjoy the beauty and bounty of the lake, and pass it on to future generations.

Water levels are continually monitored to protect the environment both above and below the dam. Follow the link below to get the latest water level reading, as well as a concise fishing forecast.
