1HR will put you at Herrington Lake or Cedar Creek Lake .. coming out of Lexington. Other than those, most other lakes are 1.5hrs of drive time, and up. Elkhorn and the KY River are also possibilities. Best "book" I can recommend, is a KY Atlas & Gazetteer ... LOL!!
Also recommended - contact the KDFWR and get all their free booklets/pamphlets. Check out their website, KY Afield website (& magazine), and http://www.gameandfishmag.com/ (click on KY, on the map, and you can read alot of the articles from previous issues).
