    I'd put in at either Settlers Trace or the State Park. From what I hear, the catfishing is best closer to the dam. Also, the thermocline is only about 11-12 ft deep so don't fish any deeper than...

    Tailwaters

    If I were you, I'd drive down to Wolf Creek Dam and trout fish the river or hatchery creek. Lots of fish, lots of access, and easy to get to. Especially hatchery creek.

    Best lake to carp fish within an hour is Cave Run Lake. Lots of big carp. Licking River has some, but tons of buffalo. Might want to check out Stoner and Hinkston Creek in Bourbon County.
