    Fishtrap Lake

    Fishtrap Lake is contained by the highest dam in Eastern Kentucky. Primary project purposes are flood risk reduction, fish and wildlife enhancement, water quality and recreation. Dam was completed in February 1969 and serves a drainage area of 392 square miles. The lake is impounded by a rolled rock impervious core dam, 195 ft. tall and 1,100 ft. long with a spillway controlled by four gates in the left abutment of the dam.
