Norris Lake Fishing

norris lake fishing

A Norris Lake fishing vacation can be enjoyable for the whole family. Staying in one of our vacation rentals, you have a great base for Norris Lake fishing. Imagine cleaning and cooking your catch in a hotel room. Now imagine a fish fry on the back porch of a vacation rental, while your little ones nap or watch cartoons.

Norris Lake is in a valley between the Great Smoky Mountains and the Cumberland mountains. Held in place by a dam constructed in 1936, it is a beautiful place for fishing, swimming, and boating. As of 2010, there were no health advisories about any species you might catch during a Norris Lake fishing expedition. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has been working to improve fish habitat, making it a prime spot for fishing. They have planted trees and grasses and built breeding structures and other fish attractors, to make Norris Lake fishing a satisfying experience for both the beginner and the avid fisherman.

There are guide services available if you need them, but if you want to explore Norris Lake fishing on your own, many of the marinas have boat rentals available. They also have maps, jet skis, pontoons, and much more.

Fish For Supper

One advantage of a vacation rental is that you can save money by doing some of your own cooking. Fry up some fish for breakfast and serve it with toast and fresh fruit, and you’re good to go for a day of Norris Lake fishing. You can pack a picnic and take it for lunch, or enjoy one of the many marina restaurants. For an early start to a day of Norris Lake fishing, eat breakfast at The Green’s Grill at the Deerfield resort clubhouse. You can play a great game of golf there too.

In addition to fish, you might see other wildlife such as deer, turkey, eagles, and great blue herons if you visit the Cove Creek Wildlife Area. At Norris Lake State Park, there are hiking trails, tennis courts, playgrounds, a swimming pool and other recreation, as well and camping and picnic areas. Check in at the visitor’s center to find out all the activities available to you during your Norris Lake fishing vacation. Tour the Cumberland Mountains and explore caves, cliffs, and beaches. Do it all from the comfort of your vacation rental, then relax in the evenings with your family all under one roof.
