    I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is a public access area at the lake cumberland dam. looks like hwy 127 goes across the dam, and there is a small road under the dam... is there bait to be caught in this area from shore? if not i wont waste my time.. im renting a pontoon from wolf river mariana at dale hollow, and can try to just get my bait in the main lake there..

    127 goes across but there is no road under the dam. You can go below the dam and there is quite a bit of shoreline accesable. Don't know what your trying to catch as far as bait goes.

    If you catching cat bait above the dam there was access before via boat ramp area . gills and I guess maybe shad if you canthro net no skipjacks . Below the dam is all COLD water species trout walleyes and stripers . Be extremely careful when the siren blows get up that bank ! When they release water they release water !
