"KYLakekiter" posts here pretty often. Seems to be the expert on kiting KY and Tennessee lakes. Seems to have the boat launch wired.

SSK is correct. There's a group that kites up there whenever they can. The conditions are not as easy as some may be used to, but it's very much possible. I see those guys down here periodically over long weekends when the wind looks good here. They are a good bunch of guys that are very welcoming to add new folks to their group. Shoot me a PM with your contact info and I can get you in touch with them if you like.

Good luck!
