John Williams, a biologist with the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Department came to Clay County to see what kind of sport fish we had lurking in our waters. As these photos show, what you find may turn out to be the biggest surprise in Kentucky fishing circles. On the left he displays two giant bass taken from Bert T. Combs Lake, at the City of Manchester's Bert T. Combs Recreation Park. In the center photo he is holding a giant drum taken from the South Fork of the Kentucky River below Oneida. At right he is holding the biggest trophy of all, the lordly muskie, champion of the sport fishing world, taken from Goose Creek near Manchester. Just so you know, all these fish were returned to the water. We would hope that you do the same if you come.
