FRANKFORT, Ky. – The boat ramp at Benjy Kinman Lake in Henry County will close Sept. 14 while repairs are being made to the lake’s dam. The project is expected to be completed in time for the spring fishing season.

Anglers may still fish from the bank or launch canoes or kayaks while the project is underway. To aid with the repairs, the 88-acre lake will be drawn down 3 to 4 feet.

The lake is located within the Boone Tract of the Kentucky River Wildlife Management Area. Anglers must release all largemouth bass caught in Benjy Kinman Lake.
