KY Fish and Wildlife preparing for extra patrol over 4th of July holiday

With the 4th of July coming up and many people taking a long weekend to celebrate the holiday, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife says it is increasing patrol on Lake Cumberland.

Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Law Enforcement, the Kentucky State Police and local agencies will increase their presence around the state’s lakes and rivers Friday to Tuesday as a reminder not to boat under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Alcohol use is the leading known contributing factor in boating accidents and fatalities, according to the U.S. Coast Guard’s 2022 Recreational Boating Statistics report.
