State Fisheries Division will remove smaller largemouth bass from Beulah Lake to improve quality

The Fisheries Division of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources plans to remove smaller largemouth bass from Beulah Lake, also known as Tyner Lake, in Jackson County to improve the quality of bass in the lake. The removed bass will be released into the ponds on the Rockcastle River Wildlife Management Area (WMA).

“This will give anglers a more desirable bass fishing experience on Beulah Lake,” said John Williams, Southeastern Fisheries District biologist for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. “You have a ton of little largemouth bass and a very small number of huge largemouth bass. Most of the bass are 10 – 11 inches long and skinny. We are trying to thin them out a little bit to make room for the remaining bass to grow.”
