Billions of cicadas expected in spring of 2021

Grab some and go fishing. Cicadas is some of the best bait you can use. They shouldn't be hard to catch this spring for fishing. Most larger species of fish love them. Brood X, a group of periodical cicadas that emerge every 17 years, will tunnel out of their long dormancy and take over the Cincinnati area.


Wolf River Resort & Marina

We would like this opportunity to update our customers about efforts being made to flatten the curve to end this pandemic. We have been in communication with the health department and local sheriff’s office and have been informed that anyone from out of state arriving to our marina must stay for 14 days. No one is allowed to come and check on boats and trailers for a day or two and then leave. If you come, plan on staying 14 days otherwise you will be asked to leave upon arrival. This is an executive order made by the governor of Kentucky and it will be enforced.

I know that we are all anxious to enjoy the houseboats on beautiful Dale Hollow Lake, but the sooner that we abide by the rules set in place this will be possible. We can’t wait to see each and every one of you. Stay safe. #HealthyatHome

[04/07/20]   Bait truck has delivered. Minnows and all worms are back in stock!


Wolf River Resort & Marina

The health and safety of our customers and staff is always our number one priority. At this time we will be canceling all reservations until May 1 due to Covid-19.

Gov. Beshear signed an executive ordering stating that all travel must stop into and out of Kentucky. Everyone who comes into Kentucky from another state must self isolate for 14 days. Anyone who arrives from another state will be asked to turn around before exiting your vehicle at Wolf River Resort. We also ask for everyone who is at the dock to practice social distancing. Stay with members of your household only. Stay 6 feet apart if you must be out and about. If we see someone not practicing social distancing we will speak up.

We are so sorry for the inconvenience. The weather is beautiful and we know everyone is ready to be on the lake. The sooner we all follow the rules, hopefully the sooner all of this will be over and we can have our summer.

Remember. Wash your hands. Cover your cough. Stay 6 feet apart. We will all get through this together. Separately. #HealthyatHome

If you have any questions please call our office. 606-387-5841.

Now a bait & tackle shop.... Sorry we no longer sell Tropical Fish

We started selling freshwater fish, plants and invertebrates in 2016. We shipped tropical fish and plants all over the world! Almost every state and several different countries. I wanted to open a local shop. In April 2018 we begin work on opening a local shop. We were going to only have tropical fish. That soon changed. Only one week after decided to open a tropical fish store we decided to take it a step further and off live bait also. We opened locally to the public in May of 2018. We started with tropical fish and live bait only. Just two months after opening, we put our first pieces of tackle in the shop. With started with the basics. Hooks, sinkers, line, and bobbers. Then we began phasing out all tropical fish and adding more and more fishing items weekly. We now carry an assortment of tackle to have an awesome day of fishing. We hope to eventually become the best go to bait & tackle shop in Clinton county and surrounding counties! We greatly appreciate each and every customer! Have a look around and if there is any questions, do not hesitate to send us a message. We will get back with you as soon as possible!
