Taylorsville Lake has the distinction of being the most heavily stocked lake for fishing in Kentucky. For a state that prides itself on its numerous lakes and excellent fishing, this is quite a boast. Located 45 miles southeast of Louisville, Taylorsville Lake covers 3,050 acres and has a shoreline of 78 miles.
The lake is named after Richard Taylor, an early pioneer landowner and gristmill operator who donated 60 acres for the town of Taylorsville. Taylorsville Lake has a full-service marina, with 38 open slips and 144 covered slips. The Salt River from which the lake was made got its unusual name from the number of salt-making operations that that once lined the river.
Marina has open and covered slips, gas, food, and fishing equipment. Rent a marina fishing boat and; schedule cruising time on one of the marina’s pontoon boats, or launch your own from four launching ramps. Seasonal. Cast your line to catch a variety of species such as: bass, bluegill and crappie. There is a wheelchair accessible fishing pier.
A Kentucky Fishing License is required.
