The LBL area has some of the nation's best sport fishing opportunities for crappie, bass, sauger, catfish, and bluegill.

Honker Lake—the name comes from the sound made by Canada geese—was created by damming off an inlet of Lake Barkley. It’s a reservoir within a reservoir. The purpose was to create a separate body of water whose level could be better controlled to accommodate geese and ducks. Honker Lake is a refuge for both migrant and resident waterfowl, and the surrounding shore is set aside as an environmental education area with special restrictions, including no camping. The Honker Lake Trail is open all year, but the lake itself is closed to boats during the winter because of its refuge function.
