UPDATE: 7/28/2011 KDFWR has a new page listing recently acquired access sites on the Elkhorn and other waters. Click here to see the page.
Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife recently announced the Landowner Fishing Access Program, which provides financial incentives to landowners with farm ponds, stream & lake access, or private boat ramps to open for public use. If you are a landowner interested in participating, make contact with the department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will definitely be watching updates and announcements about this program–additional access is what Smallwater Fishing is all about. Incidentally, KDFWR is also offering a similar program for private land opened to the public for hunting.
