Old Hickory Lake Fishing

In north-central Tennessee lies a 23,000-acre fishing reservoir called Old Hickory Lake. While most of the lake’s 440 miles of shoreline are surrounded by private homes, you can find some public fishing spots in the parks and a few other areas. You’ll have better options if you head out on the lake in a boat. Old Hickory Lake is home to bass, crappie, catfish, walleye, striped bass, sunfish, and many other fish species. The fish here are plentiful and healthy. In the spring and fall, the fish gather in the shallow areas, then move to the deeper areas in the summer and winter. Check for them around submerged humps, ledges, and points.
