BUCKNER – Fishermen have a better chance of landing the big one in the Wendell Moore Park Lake thanks to a new fishing dock.
The dock, which stretches 50-feet out into the lake, ends a 30-foot wide T and allows improved access to the water on the 20 plus acre lake. The lake has limited access along a sometimes steep shoreline and since half the lake is not available due to the shoreline being on the grounds of the Kentucky State Reformatory.
“It’s pretty nice,” Oldham County Parks Director Tim Curtis said. “It’s a lot bigger than the old dock.”
The dock came from the Salato Fish and Wildlife Center in Frankfort, operated by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. Oldham County Judge/Executive David Voegele helped secure the new dock when he found out the KDFWR was replacing it.
The agency transported the dock to the park lake and even set it up in late February. The dock sits on the lake almost on a straight line behind the Oldham County Aquatic Center with parking behind the pool.
Since boats are not allowed on the lake, it offers more room to residents who can fish for the bass and bluegill that populate the lake.
“We’ve seen a lot of people using it already,” Curtis said. “They all seem to be glad we’ve got it. It’s really a nice addition for us.”
