FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                           1-800-858-1549, ext. 4454

Boat horsepower restrictions lifted on eight small state-owned lakes; idle speed for larger motors

FRANKFORT, Ky. – Boat motor horsepower restrictions have been lifted on eight state-owned lakes.

Previously, boaters could not operate a motor larger than 10 horsepower on these lakes. Boaters can now use the larger motors, but must run them at idle speed only. Anglers may continue to run boat motors that are 10 horsepower or smaller at any speed.

Waters affected by this regulation include Boltz, Bullock Pen and Corinth lakes in Grant County; Beaver Lake in Anderson County; Elmer Davis Lake in Owen County; Kincaid Lake in Pendleton County; Shanty Hollow Lake in Warren and Edmonson counties; and Swan Lake in Ballard County.

The restrictions were lifted to increase fishing access to anglers with more powerful boats.

The new regulations lifting the horsepower limits received final approval too late for inclusion in the 2015 Kentucky Fishing and Boating Guide. However, signs advising anglers of this change will be posted in the coming weeks at all affected lakes.

Conservation officers with Kentucky Fish and Wildlife will strictly enforce the idle speed only regulation on boats with larger motors. Signs posted at each lake will include a phone number for the public to report any violators.
