Why you need to fish in Tennessee

by Tennessee Vacations

With more than 50 rivers and countless lakes in Tennessee, a beautiful, relaxing day on the water is right around the corner. Dale Hollow Lake is recognized as one of the nation’s premier bass fisheries, known for its rare beauty, ultra-clear water and unspoiled shoreline. Mild weather most of the year means acclaimed fishing everywhere, all the time in Tennessee. Broad, slow rivers, peaceful lakes and fast-running mountain streams continue to call fisherman to Tennessee's sparkling waters. Pickwick Lake is a treasure because it’s actually three lakes in one, offering 12 months of fishing action and opportunities to catch all species of bass. Go out and seek adventure with a knowledgeable guide, available to lead you to some of the lesser known fishing destinations.

For skilled anglers, Tennessee’s fishing tournaments offer big prizes for big catches. Chickamauga Reservoir is home to record-setting bass—any angler looking for a good place to fish must plan an outing to this reservoir. Cast your line into some of the country’s best fishing holes—with so many lakes and rivers, it’s hard to find a spot where the fishing isn’t good.
