Tournament Fishing Schedule

All fishing tournaments in Kentucky are suspended until further notice because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The department intends to keep boat ramps open for public use and avoid a complete shutdown due to overcrowding. Compliance with current guidance about mass gatherings and proper social distancing is essential. We encourage the public to continue to enjoy our waterways responsibly. Avoid crowds of any size and practice social distancing to fight the spread of the coronavirus.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources welcomes you to the Tournament Fishing Scheduling web site where you can view scheduled fishing tournaments for a water body, ramp and date you select. This system is designed help both tournament organizers and recreational boaters avoid ramp conflicts. In addition, tournament organizers can electronically record their catch data and apply for a marine event permit for tournaments expecting 100 or more boats.
