Fishing at it's finest on the beautiful Kentucky Lake/TN River--some people say that's what it's all about! Imagine more than 100 species scattered over broad expanses of fresh water and lurking in hundreds of secluded coves. Crappie, bass, catfish, sauger, walleye, bluegill, stripes, and more - they're singing a siren song just for you. There's something for everyone, from the expert angler with the fancy gear (some of the biggest tournaments are staged here) to the kid on the bank with a cane pole, and everywhere in between. There are two fishing piers available. Anglers 13 and older must have a valid TN Fishing license.
