Guide To Fishing At Coffey County Lake
AKA: Wolf Creek Reservoir
Dedicated exclusively to fishing, Coffey County Lake, aka Wolf Creek Reservoir, is a 5,100-acre lake in the eastern part of the state, at New Strawn. Other than one night catfish tournament the lake is open for fishing from sunup to sunset.
As the cooling pond for the Wolf Creek Generating Station, the water stays warm and the fish grow year round. The pride of Wolf Creek Reservoir is its great fishing for big smallmouth bass. Cruise the 20 miles of shoreline in search of smallies, largemouth, catfish and walleye. Crappie, white bass and wipers are also abundant in the lake. Just across the highway is John Redmond Reservoir, which has a campground.
