This 8,300 acre impoundment of the Licking River is nestled in the Daniel Boone National Forest and offers thousands of acres of musky rich water. Pristine shorelines and local tourist opportunities make for a great vacation.

Cave Run Lake is located in northeastern Kentucky between the cities of Frenchburg and Morehead. Cave Run Lake is known as the Muskie Capital of the South with good reason. On September 21, 2001, the new state record muskie - 54 1/2 inches and 44.75 lbs - was caught here by Tony Grant. The waters are also great for bass, crappie, catfish, and trout fishing.
