Public fishing area reopens at Meldahl Lock

A popular public fishing access on the Ohio River is now back open to public use after an extensive renovation as part of a larger hydroelectric project at Meldahl Lock and Dam in Bracken County.

“Anglers will now have improved recreational facilities and access to the tailrace area of the new hydroelectric facility adjacent to Meldahl Lock and Dam,” said Ron Brooks, director of fisheries for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “This area has long been popular with bank anglers.”
