These conveniently located smaller lakes offer good access and open shorelines but also fantastic odds of catching fish. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources keeps the FINs lakes well stocked with rainbow trout and more on this story...

I rode along with reporter Rick Flowers, a great friend of mine, who, like myself, was a graduate of Man High School. We spent so many Friday nights on the road.   It was more on this story...
