FINS Program!
What is FINs?
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) created the Fishing in Neighborhoods (FINs) program in 2006 to
provide anglers with quality fishing opportunities close to home. In 2014 the program includes 39 lakes statewide. The aim of the program
is to create quality fishing opportunities near cities of all sizes throughout the state. Lakes are regularly stocked with catfish and rainbow
trout throughout the year. In addition to these lakes being stocked with catfish and trout, the sunfish and bass populations are regularly
sampled to ensure natural reproduction is meeting the needs of anglers. Stocking of hybrid sunfish and/or largemouth bass occur if
needed.
The FINs program is a cooperative agreement between KDFWR and city/county municipalities. Lake owners have committed to cover 25%
of the stocking costs. All 39 lakes in the FINs program have a standard set of regulations that are posted around the lakes.
These regulations are a little more restrictive than the statewide regulations but help spread the fish harvest out over a longer period of
time. Boone County Parks & Recreation Department is proud to be a part of the Fins Program. Camp Ernst lake has a sign posted with
rules and regulations.
FINS Regulations
 Rainbow Trout - Daily Limit: 5
Minimum Size Limit: None
 Channel/Blue Catfish - Daily Limit: 4
Minimum Size Limit: None
 Largemouth Bass - Daily Limit: 1
Minimum Size Limit: 15"
 Bluegill/Other Sunfish - Daily Limit: 15
Minimum Size Limit: None
License Requirements
 Resident/Nonresident Youth ages 15 and younger do not need a fishing license or trout permit. Residents/Nonresidents age 16 and
older must posses a statewide fishing license.
 Resident Seniors age 65 and older are not required to purchase a trout permit to keep trout if in possession of the Resident Senior
License.
 Resident/Nonresident Fishing License holders must purchase a Trout Permit to posses Rainbow Trout. Resident/Nonresident Fishing
License holders can fish for Rainbow Trout, but can not be in possession of trout.
 Any angler can fish without a fishing license on the Free Fishing Days that take place the first weekend in June (June 7-8, 2014).
