This man-made 3,600-acre lake, created in 1925, is the deepest in Kentucky. It is abundantly stocked for fishing enthusiasts, with bluegill, catfish, crappie, hybrid striped bass, largemouth bass, spotted bass, and white bass, and it’s the perfect playground for many outdoor and recreational sports.

There are boat launches in Danville/Boyle County at the Coffey’s Cove Marina and the Gwinn Island Marina. If you need bait and tackle, Holt’s Outfitters and Sporting Goods Store and Curtsinger’s Sunrise Outfitters.

And if you want to get out on the water and don’t have your own boat, Danville Ky Kayak and Paddle Boards has kayaks you can rent by the hour or by the day. Call them at 859-324-1215 for more information about rentals.
