Coffey County Lake

Dock Overlooking the John Redmond ReservoirConsisting of 5,090 acres, Coffey County Lake has proven to be one of the premier fishing lakes since opening for limited public fishing in October 1996.

Hours

Coffey County Lake has resumed normal hours. The lake is open for public use every day except for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Lake hours are subject to change due to specific weather conditions. The lake may close if specific weather conditions arise.

Fishing

Coffey County Lake is dedicated exclusively to fishing. The lake has been featured on national television programs such as Jimmy Houston's Outdoors and Bill Saiff's Rod and Reel. Many fishermen have shared their fishing experiences.

Coffey County Lake is also on the Catfish Chasers Tournament circuit in July. This overnight tournament is the only time that fishing at night is permitted by lake management.

Stock

Coffey County Lake offers one of the best predator to prey ratios in the country, which means fish thrive year long. Largemouth Bass and crappie can often be hooked near areas of standing timber.  The open waters are home to white bass and wipers. Along the rock-lined shores you're likely to find walleye, channel catfish, and probably the best supply of Smallmouth Bass anywhere in the Midwest.
