Additional fishing access opens at Taylorsville Lake WMA
From Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife
Frankfort, KY - A portion of Old River Road paralleling the Salt River in Anderson County opens Saturday, March 7 to anglers wishing to fish the headwaters of Taylorsville Lake for the spring white bass run. As spring nears and water temperatures approach the low 50s, white bass will "run" from downstream up into the headwaters to spawn, providing fast and exciting fishing action.
The gated accesses at Palmer Road and Old River Road off KY 44 at Taylorsville Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA) will remain open from daylight until dark into summer, except for temporary closures during the youth-only and general spring turkey seasons.
High water or ongoing road maintenance may force the temporary closure of Old River Road.
These gated accesses will remain open from March 7 until April 3. Following a weekend closure April 4-5 for youth-only turkey season, the gates will reopen April 6 until April 17. Gates will remain locked during the general spring turkey season, April 18 to May 10, to prevent disturbance to hunters. Gates will reopen May 11 until early August.
Old River Road allows anglers easy access to nearly 2 miles of bank along the north side of the Salt River. The area includes gravel parking lots and several small pull-offs spread along the roadway. Parking is permitted only in the graveled parking spots and designated pull-offs. Visitors who drive through fields or park in other than designated areas are subject to citation.
Maps of Taylorsville Lake WMA and other public fishing and hunting areas are available online at fw.ky.gov, the website of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. Search under the keywords, "Taylorsville Lake WMA" to view a map of the area.
