Trophy Country Fishing
Whether you enjoy fly fishing or bait casting, we believe you will agree with our past guests that fishing at Trophy Country is as good as it gets. We have been "catch & release" for several years.
Approximately 800 acres of strip-mine lakes are comprised of over 100 different bodies of quality water and habitat. These bodies of water have now been stocked for over 30 years. The largest is approximately 250 acres in size, and there are many 30 and 40 acre structures.
The development of these bodies of water through mining has created lakes with literally hundreds of miles of irregular-shaped shoreline. Some of the lakes have depths exceeding 100 feet. The many interspersed islands create a wide diversity of depth and clarity of water. These diverse bodies of water vary greatly in temperature and pH. Most are large enough to enjoy the use of boats, while others are just right for fishing from the bank or a float tube.
The water is cold and the fish are real fighters. The huge population of Largemouth Bass frequently produce fish in the 8 to 10 pound range. The potential for a trophy is there every time you throw your line in these waters. There are Kentucky spotted bass of national record setting size.
Crappie, Bluegill, Green Sunfish and Northern Pike are also prevalent and sporting due to their size and aggressiveness. There are a few bodies of water that provide jug fishing for catfish, and bow hunting for carp.
We practice catch and release, but have options that include taking certain fish for clients planning an over-night stay.
We can accommodate your needs for boats, trolling motors, lodging, and meals. We will be happy to give you quotes on fishing, or combinations with other Trophy Country activities. Boats included in daily price.
Too hot to Fish? Not at Trophy Country!
Deep cold water, miles of tree lined shores and deep feeding Kentucky Spotted Bass make it a cool place to be.
