About Sailings Grocery & Bait
Anglers from near and far come to Nolin River Lake for fishing. Nolin is known for excellent populations of walleye. Largemouth bass and crappie are caught in large numbers, as are tremendous numbers of channel catfish. The lake also has good populations of white bass and bluegill. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources releases rainbow trout in the Nolin River at the Tailwater Recreation Area boat ramp three or four times each summer. Numerous fishermen come to take advantage of these releases.
The Corps of Engineers has constructed fishing piers in three areas to assist anglers in fishing. These piers are located in the day use portion of the Moutardier, Wax, and Dog Creek Recreation Areas. Use of these piers is free.
For fishermen wishing to create their own “hot spot,” the Corps of Engineers offers a free permit allowing a person to install fish attractors in the lake. Usually comprised of stake beds or “recycled” Christmas trees, these fish attractors provide habitat for various species of fish around the lake. No fish attractors may be installed without this free permit. The location of the fish attractor will be placed on a map in the Nolin River Lake project office; maps are available to visitors upon request. Anyone may fish at these fish attractors.
When fishing Nolin River Lake, remember that all Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources fishing regulations are enforced at the lake. For additional information about fishing regulations, including size limits, visit the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources web site.
