Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley are among the largest man-made bodies of water on the Earth. These lakes, which surround the Land Between the lakes on three sides, combine to cover nearly 220,000 surface acres with a canal stretching nearly two miles that connects them to the north. While these two LBL Lakes are spectacular for fishing, there are an additional 4 interior lakes that are fish-able. The result for the sportsman, is a single stop for some of the best fishing you will find in the South East. The Land Between the Lakes offers you a multitude of choices for your fishing vacation. If your luck runs out in one spot, you can simply take a short drive right to the next, all within the confines of LBL.
