    What you need to know about fishing Norris Lake

    Norris Lake is a 34,000-acre reservoir located in North East Tennessee. Completed in 1936, the Norris Dam impounds 73 miles up the Clinch River and 56 miles up the Powell River. With over 800 miles of shoreline, there are unlimited places to wet a line. Boat launches located around the lake make it easy to get on the water. The size and diversity of the lake allows for many different species to thrive and it’s not uncommon to pull in stripers exceeding 50 pounds. Bass, crappie, walleye, and muskie are often targeted species as well. Bass alone draw anglers to the lake throughout the year with many major tournament trails choosing to compete on its waters. In the spring and fall, various species will be moving up shallow where finding the right creek arm could allow you to fill the boat. During the summer and winter months, a productive strategy is trying to locate deep channel swings, points, and humps where they tend to school up in their quest to locate bait.  Max Depth: 210 ft, Average Depth: 75 ft
