    Hi,

    Looking for a spot to fish for crappie in early April, before the ol' pontoon boat goes in the water on my home lake.

    Has anyone been to Greenbo Lake state park, near Ashland Ky? Their lake is basically just a pond, 225 acres, but apparently has good fishing for Largemouth and Crappie. Looks like a good spot to fish from a canoe.

    If anyone wants to share their fishing experiences at any other Kentucky state park, it will be much appreciated.

    Thanks very much.

  2. Fished there several times...never for crappie though. 225 acres is smaller than most lakes, but Greenbo is long and narrow w/ different branches----can make for a very long canoe ride. IMO Yatesville is the best bass lake in NE KY. Never fished for crappie in any KY lakes though.
