    Question Kayaking in Central Kentucky

    I live in Richmond, and fell in love with kayak fishing. I usually fish Stoner Creek, but am looking for new waters to explore. I know about Elkhorn, and I live near Boonesboro, but where else do you guys fish using kayaks? I like going places that aren't fished a lot, and always throw back everything I catch. Care to share or send me a PM....thanks for the help!

    You need to pm "raincheck" he's a yaking master when it comes to fishing out of a kayak.

    I'll echo the suggestion of the Rockcastle River. That sure is a scenic trip. I've only been on it once, but I'd like to go back.

    The Green River is another one to look at.

    Re: Kayaking in Central Kentucky

    Hey guys, thanks for the responses. I will PM Mr. Adolph (raincheck) soon for his advice. I thought about GR, but didn't even consider Rockcastle, even though I love fishin Woodcreek Lake. I googled it, but I have no idea where a good place with water to fish would be to put in would be. I'm not familiar with that area. Any suggestions on areas of the Rockcastle (or anywhere else) that would be suited for some kayak fishing? PM me if you don't want to post it. Thanks for the help again fellas.

    As someone else said, we put in on the Rockcastle close to Livingston. We took out before the whitewater section. It's been a couple of years. It was all pretty fishable, but we didn't catch many fish. I had a nice walleye follow my crankbait in on one cast.

    Re: Kayaking in Central Kentucky

    For kayaking or a canoe, the two most fun trips I've been on in central Ky were on the Elkhorn and the Dix River (below Herrington Lake). Fishing them in the summer is always a great time, especially since the Dix is so cool, and I tend to turn over on the Elkhorn with those rapids! Ha ha ha!
