WHERE: Land Between the Lakes, Kentucky and Tennessee
TARGET: Bass, crappies, bluegills, and catfish
INTEL: Kentucky and Barkley lakes' fisheries are well known to most anglers, but the real tip is knowing how to enjoy these gems away from the crowds. Stay for a week at one of the 12 backcountry campsites (Birmingham Ferry, Boswell Landing, Demumbers Bay, Ginger Bay, Neville Bay, Nickell Branch, Pisgah Point, Redd Hollow, Smith Bay, Sugar Bay, Taylor Bay, and Twin Lakes), which all have a boat ramp. Or really disappear at one of the backcountry sites located along the trails that wind through the area. More camping information can be found at lbl.org.
