    Hey all,
    I am new to this forum but of course i am Kentucky born and raised. I am a musky fisherman. I grew up about thirty minutes from Cave Run and always got to go fish there. Well my wife and i moved to Pikeville this year so she can attend med school. I am wandering if there are any muskies in any of these rivers like Russell's and Levisa Fork of the Big Sandy? Or is the cave still my closest bet? Any help would be great!
    Thanks!

    Tygarts and Kinniconick creeks are stocked, as well as streams in the upper Green, Kentucky, and Licking rivers. Little Sandy River, Green River, Cave Run Lake and Buckhorn Lake are known for producing big muskies.

    The only place I've fished for musky is Cave Run but I know the upper streams of the Licking river have musky
