Kentucky Lake

Kentucky Lake is the largest lake in the Tennessee River system and the last before the river flows into the Ohio River at Paducah, Kentucky. Spanning the western portion of Tennessee and southwest Kentucky, the lake is 184 miles long, has 2,380 miles of shoreline, and 160,300 surface acres of water at summer water levels. It collects rainfall from a 40,200-square-mile watershed. Land Between The Lakes, a National Recreation Area administered by TVA, is located on the lower end of Kentucky Lake. Because the lake is located along a major waterfowl migration route, it supports a wintering population of more than 450,000 waterfowl, substantially more than any other TVA lake. Kentucky Lake offers excellent fishing for crappie, smallmouth and largemouth bass, bluegill, catfish, and sauger.

Going east on I-24 from Paducah, KY, Kentucky Lake has may access points since it is such a long lake.
