After booking your fishing adventure with us you will be directed to Mountain Muskie Lodge. Your confirmation letter and map will direct you from major intestates into the Daniel Boone National Forest and the Cave Run Lake recreation area. As you leave the interstate and head towards the foothills a stop will be required, We are in a rural area, so to fully enjoy the stay a packed cooler is necessary, this is also a dry county. There is nothing like a fresh grilled steak and a cold one among friends after an exciting day on the water with our staff, the fish stories are sure to fill the night air. Small restaurants are located in the area and a full service city is located within thirty minutes.


As the sun rises you should be preparing for one of the most educational, fact filled, and fun fishing adventures you have ever been introduced to. Packing a simple lunch, snacks and drinks is a good idea. We do have coolers on the boats, but do not provide lunch or drinks. Rain gear and polarized sunglasses will also make your day more enjoyable and productive. You can end the day any time you wish but we offer you a full 8 hours on the water, sometimes more.
